A collaboration between friends on opposite shores...
Knitwear designers Alana Dakos and Hannah Fettig are two friends living on opposite ends of the United States. They have come together to produce Coastal Knits, a compilation of ten fresh designs inspired by Alana's California and Hannah's Maine coastlines. Each design captures the essence of their favorite local destinations, and is accompanied by photographs and essays on the location's special meaning to the designer. It is a personal, inspiration-based collection of sweaters and accessories that knitters of all levels will appreciate.
As an East Coast native, Hannah Fettig designs classic sweaters for a modern audience. Her Knitbot pattern line is known for wearable and stylish sweaters, the most popular being her Featherweight Cardigan.
Alana Dakos, a West Coast native, is drawn to romantic styling, feminine details, and intricate stitches. She draws most of her inspiration from the natural world around her and enjoys working botanical design elements into her stitch patterns.
