Jane and I are so excited to see what projects you'll be casting on from our newest book - Within: Knitting Patterns to Warm the Soul that we thought it would be fun to run a knit along! It will be a casual, ongoing knit along where you can simply tag your projects with #withinknits on social media and Ravelry! 

If you're on Ravelry you can pop into our brand new MARIAN RAE PUBLICATIONS Ravelry Group and share your Within projects in the Within Knit Along thread! Feel free to chat, ask questions and more! We'll be featuring some of your finished projects and there may even be some prizes ;)

here's no end date, we're keeping it casual - we just want you guys to have fun and enjoy making the knits from the book! We love to see what you are all making! 

Thank you for your ongoing support and we hope you're enjoying knitting from Within!

We hope you'll join us!

I'm so beyond excited to give you a sneak peek of our newest book "WITHIN: Knitting Patterns to Warm the Soul", by myself and Jane Richmond - coming October 5th!!!! EEEEEEEK!!!! I hope you all will love it as much as we do. I poured my heart and soul into this one and we're so happy with how this lovely collection turned out!


"Within is the newest collection by designers Jane Richmond and Shannon Cook, featuring six signature patterns for wherever your heart takes you. Inside, you’ll find accessories, a shawl, and what may become your new favorite everyday garments. Together, the pieces in this accessible collection make a functional and beautiful addition to any knitter’s wardrobe. 

More than just a pattern book, Within takes the knitter on a visual journey through a world of rustic coziness photographed on Vancouver Island, designed to stimulate the senses and kindle inspiration."
