The Return to Maine series includes 14 sewing and knitting patterns that work together to create a complete wardrobe, plus a selection of beautiful photos, stories and essays from our journeys and artisans throughout Maine. Following on the heels the popular and out-of-print By Hand Serial issue (Lookbook 2: Portland, Maine), this book provides a more comprehensive look at the scenery and natural splendor of Maine, which provides inspiration for the accompanying collection.
There are 7 knitting patterns and 7 sewing patterns.
The book also includes a selection of the best essays and writings from By Hand's Return to Maine Journal series, including a Route US 1 Road Trip, visits to Acadia and Deer Isle, a Moose Safari by Canoe, and On the Fly, a special feature from female fly-fishers Bri Dostie and Noam Stark. Pages are full of gorgeous, full-color photography from Jenn Bakos. Additionally, the book contains tips for material selection and modification of each pattern and guidance on construction methods via video, provided by QR code on some pattern’s feature pages.
