Description

When former CBS vice president Suzan Mischer decided to open a knitting store on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, she wanted to create a place where people could gather, slow down, and talk (as well as buy supplies). The result was Knit Cafe, a sleek yet homey neighborhood yarn store in one of the most famous neighborhoods in the world.

This fabulous shop-and its unique spirit-are celebrated in Greetings from Knit Cafe, now available in an updated paperback edition.

Colorful and chic, the book offers 30 of Knit Cafe’s most dazzling patterns for “California-style” projects ranging from hiking socks to a bikini to a “red carpet” gown. It also features stories about how the celebrated store came to be and how its eclectic clientele came to shape it. Even a few favorite recipes from regular customers are included.

Knitters nationwide will enjoy Knit Cafe’s California spirit and join its eclectic circle of devotees.
