Even if you aren’t a Twilight fan or watch “True Blood”, you’ll love the edgy and stylish knitting patterns in Vampire Knits by Genevive Miller. The book features 27 knitting projects featuring cozy caplets, sweaters, shrugs, arm warmers, scarves, socks, and more. I am particularly drawn to some of the beautiful cable knits like the arm warmers and neck warmers, cleverly titled “Pulse Protectors” (shown bottom left) and the Belissima mittens inspired by Bella of Twilight (shown bottom right). The cover project is the Lore Hoodie by Cirilia Rose of Berroco who was inspired by her long winter walks she took in between devouring Twilight and episodes of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”. The hoodie is a perfect sweater project for fall and I love the beautiful lace pattern in the lower half of the sweater. In fact, most of the projects in this book are a perfect for “back to fall/winter” knitting. Looking all all the gorgeous photos, you’ll just want to pick up your needles and knit! Find out more about the book on the Vampire Knits blog where you can also print a free pattern for the Tourniquet Scarf.
