Free Knitting e-Book, The Best of Interweave Knits: The Readers' Choice Awards Collection, Available on KnittingDaily.com for Limited Time

--Knitters Worldwide Name their Top 5 Designs of the Past 10 Years--

Last year, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Interweave Knits, the magazine's editors picked their favorite designs and published them in the popular book The Best of Interweave Knits: Our Favorite Designs from the First 10 Years (Interweave Press, Paperbound $24.95). Then the editors turned the tables and asked readers to nominate their favorite designs published in Interweave Knits between 1997 and spring 2007. Thousands of nominations came in from knitters from around the globe. After a vote-off of the Top 10 earlier this year on KnittingDaily.com, we are pleased to announce the publication of the Top 5 patterns in e-Book format as The Best of Interweave Knits: The Readers' Choice Awards Collection—now available for free download on KnittingDaily.com.
