Look through the eyes of Downton Abbey with this new special issue - Unofficial Downton Abbey Knits - from Interweave's PieceWork magazine. Enjoy knits inspired by the lavish sets and styling of the hugely popular television series, which tells the story of the Grantham clan and their servants at England’s Downton Abbey.
You will find articles that set the scene—from “The Life and Times of Highclere Castle” (the “real” Downton Abbey) to Beeton’s Book of Household Management (a must-have compendium for any downstairs cook) and “Knitting Comforts for the Troops” (knitters produced prodigious quantities of warm clothing and other items for servicemen and the wounded during World War I). Talented knitwear designers have created an exciting array of projects—twenty-seven classic knitting patterns in all—for upstairs, downstairs, and wartime knitting.
Whether you want to dress up or down, dine in elegance or in the kitchen, attend the opera or a county fair, the patterns in these pages will provide you with infinite options.
