Worsted – A Knitwear Collection Curated by Aimée Gille of La Bien Aimée is a knitwear collection featuring 14 patterns by 10 incredible designers, published by Laine, publishers of the fiber world’s most sought-after hard cover knitting and crochet books.

The ten talented designers included in this coffee-table worthy book all have their unique style that will speak to many kinds of knitters. This beautiful collection includes garments such as sweaters and cardigans and accessories like shawls and hats, with techniques ranging from stripes and stranded colorwork to cables and textured stitch patterns.

Featuring designs by Nadia Crétin-Léchenne, Stephen West, Sylvia Watts-Cherry, Andrea Mowry, Tif Neilan, Saysha Greene, Norah Gaughan, Maxim Cyr, Nancy Marchant and Thien-Kieu Lam.

The 14 patterns in the book include 5 sweaters, 2 cardigans, 1 poncho, 3 shawls, 2 cowls and 1 beanie.

Sweaters and cardigans are graded into various sizes, reaching from size 1 (30” / 75 cm bust circumference) to at least size 8 (or 65” / 165 cm bust circumference).

Aimée Gille was born and raised in Kansas and later moved to France where her passion for knitting was reignited. In Paris, where she now lives with her family, she first opened L’OisiveThé, a wonderful knitting café, and later La Bien Aimée, a yarn company whose gorgeous hand-dyed yarns are sold worldwide.

With Worsted, Aimée wanted to create a tangible way to connect with people through knitting and bring joy. During the challenges of coronavirus pandemic, Aimée found comfort in immersing herself in creating a new yarn base, Corrie Worsted, and inspired by it, all of the designs in the book are worked in worsted weight yarn.

In Aimée’s own words: “I hope that you will welcome the adventure of casting on a new project from this book with perhaps some of that beloved yarn you have curated for your stash or why not go on a yarn escapade and mix Corrie Worsted with other yarns.”
