By Hand is a series of lookbooks that focus on different fiber and fabric "making communities" around the world.
Each serial will feature photo journals and interviews with both up-and-coming and well-known yarn designers and dyers, local yarn stores, knitwear designers, fabric artists, and other makers who share the same philosophy and aesthetic of hand crafting functional forms to share and connect with others in the community. Knitting and crocheting patterns as well as other projects instructions are included and vary from issue to issue.
In this issue, take an intimate trip to Rhode Island. The smallest state in the nation might be often overlooked, but there are many makers here, ready to be discovered! Explore scenery tailored to escapism: ivy covered brick and rugged coastlines, sprawling mansions set against crashing waves and stormy skies. Through our pages, discover that Rhode Island has more to offer than relics of the past—the Ocean State has a vibrant, bubbling culture of creatives!
By Hand Serial Lookbook #15 includes eight projects and a recipe to inspire and excite you.
