Almost 2 years ago, I saw Stephannie Tallent's call for submissions for a book she was curating with Cooperative Press. It was intriguing, based on the films of Alfred Hitchcock and using a color palette of black, white, shades of grey, and splashes of crimson. I loved working with Stephannie when she was with Knitcircus, so I couldn't pass it up.
I designed the Alicia Tam and Mitts, based on Ingrid Bergman in Notorious. I actually used this image as a starting point for my sketch.
The lovely folks at Brooklyn Tweed provided the yarn, Loft, and I feel like the end result is just as current and wearable now as it was then.
You can order Hitch from Cooperative Press or on Ravelry for $16.95. Or you can win a digital copy here, by leaving a comment. The winner will be chosen by random number generator. Be sure to leave your email or Ravelry ID so you can receive your prize.
