Item details

This listing is for both a physical object - a set of 3 gorgeous stitch markers - AND a digital item - the PDF download of my original knitting pattern E-book "Looking Back". 'Looking Back' contains intermediate knitting patterns to create 3 beautiful fingering weight shawls - Mother of Invention, Charlatan and Old Magic. Each stitch marker corresponds to one of the patterns.

You will receive a light bulb with fluorescent yellow faceted glass bead to use as you work on Mother of Invention. The set also includes an ornate bronze vial charm, coordinating with the theme of the Charlatan shawl. And finally a mystical leaf with a dark red bead dangling, the perfect accent as you work on Old Magic.

From the e-book synopsis: "At first glance, these three designs might seem like an odd grouping. But not so! They are all tied together by a common thread--the pursuit of wellness, health and life, as realized through history. Long ago, when collective knowledge about healing was steeped in superstition and lore, many relied on little more than herbs, spells and Old Magic to heal the sick. As time marched on, potions and powders were peddled, purported to improve health in all sorts of ways. These snake oil salesmen, these Charlatans, offered hope with their wares, but their claims were ultimately a ruse. Until the advent of modern medicine, little could be done for the sick above rest and attentive care. But the necessity of a better way to treat the those who were ill drove some to science, to the study of pathogens and their treatments. As they say, necessity is the Mother of Invention. And modern medicine has given rise to vaccines, antibiotics and all manner of other “miracles” to treat the body. What glorious discoveries might the future hold?"

You can learn more about each individual pattern at the following links, including materials required, needle size, gauge and description of construction techniques:

This set is the perfect gift for a knitter friend, or as a special treat for yourself! You will receive the three stitch markers, beautifully packaged and shipped to you within 1-2 business days. You will also receive an email from me containing the PDF pattern that you can download for your personal use. (Please abide by copyright laws and do not distribute or share your copy of the pattern book). If you would prefer, I can make the pattern available through your Ravelry account -- simply leave a Note to Seller giving me your Ravelry ID name so that I can get the pattern into your library! Otherwise, please leave the email address you would like the file sent to in the Notes to Seller. Please allow 1-2 business days to coordinate the receipt of your e-book (as this is a complex listing with both physical and digital products, the digital content must be delivered manually).

*** PLEASE NOTE: This listing is for the PDF knitting instructions to create the three shawls shown. The only physical product you will receive are the 3 coordinating stitch markers. ***
