Brimming with artistic inspiration and filled with patterns for gorgeous knitwear and joyful pieces for the home, this creative and original book invites you to step inside Dee Hardwicke's world. Illustrated throughout with beautiful watercolours and painterly photography, The Knitted Fabric brings the pages of Dee's sketchbooks to life. As Dee explains, “I find the process of knitting very similar to painting, with each stitch being a brushstroke of colour. As stitches loop together, they create a knitted fabric, a kind of narrative of art, making and the people and landscapes that inspire me”. Just like the designs within it, this unique book is something to treasure.

Many of the projects use John Arbon Textiles' Knit by Numbers DK in the Butterfly section of the book.
We also have a truly fabulous kit designed by Dee using the Knit by Numbers DK called 'Dreaming of Butterflies'. The wrap is based on one of the projects in this book and is available in 3 vibrant colourways curated by Dee and us, just for Loop! It's gorgeous!
