Jennie Atkinson worked as a fashion knitwear designer for many years. Her designs are classic and feminine, focusing on shape, color, and stitch detail. She has worked as a freelance designer for the home-knit market, and her designs have been featured in Rowan magazines, Vogue Knitting, and The Knitter magazine. In 2006, Rowan Yarns published her book Beads, Buttons and Lace: 20 Romantic Knitting & Crochet Designs. She is a graduate of the Royal College of Art in London, with a Masters Degree in Design History. In addition to design work, she also lectures on fashion and knitwear history.

Inspired by women’s clothing, lingerie, and accessories from the 1900’s to 1930’s, A Handknit Romance offers designs that are intricate and exquisite. Step back in time with techniques including pin-tucks, picot trims, crochet edges, lace beading, and embroidery that convey modest and flirty classic fitted patterns using a range of lace, superfine, fine, and light yarn weights.

Attention to detail is demonstrated throughout and the result is a collection of unique, precious garments that reflect today’s vogue for vintage-inspired fashion. Rowan designer Jennie Atkinson offers beautiful projects that range from small accessories to full-size garments and suit beginner and seasoned knitters alike.

Along with a fresh assortment of beautiful garments and accessories, you’ll find advice on yarn substitutions as well as tips on how the patterns can be customized to fit all sizes. A Handknit Romance is the ideal design book for knitters who embrace creativity and the want to produce truly unique pieces.
