The Knit Vibe

A Knitter’s Guide to Creativity, Community, and Well-being for the Mind, Body & Soul

A knitting adventure with projects, patterns, rituals, yoga, creative inspiration, numerology, knitting experts, astrology, community, and more!

What if we look at our lives through the lens of the conduit that streams our creativity?

In her latest book (October 2019) The Knit Vibe: A Knitter’s Guide to Creativity, Community, and Well-Being for Mind, Body & Soul, author Vickie Howell pens a love letter to yarn craft. In it, she explores how for those in the knitting and crochet community, the act of creating with fiber is the through-line of how we choose to navigate life.

The Knit Vibe by Vickie Howell

The Knit Vibe—a book like no other—with interviews, patterns, and an in-depth look at the knitting community and the creative potential of knitting. Dive into a special section on the wellness benefits of the craft, catch a glimpse of knitting’s superstars (including Bristol Ivy, Kaffe Fassett, Diva Zappa, Caitlin Hunter) in conversation with Howell, or try your hand at loads of how-tos and projects from the likes of Nancy Marchant, Marly Bird, Tanis Gray, Amy Small, and many more.

“Pick up some yarn, start where you are, get creative” is the message Howell weaves through the book and her series, The Knit Show. Gathering inspiration from all facets of the knitting universe, the book offers chapters on The Makings (go-to knitted gifts), The Surroundings (cool projects for your knitting space), and The Intention (vibe-y rituals, yoga, and self-care every knitter—and would-be knitter—craves).


“From inspirational interviews with kniteratti including Kaffe Fassett, Erika Knight, former Vogue Knitting editor Trisha Malcolm, Diva Zappa, and Siedah Garrett to yoga poses, vitamins, and rituals for stitcher-specific self care, The Knit Vibe is like your coolest, Palo Santo-burning girlfriend who also knows her way around two-color brioche.
