Knitting is undergoing a stylish renaissance, thanks in part to the inspiration and creativity of knitter-to-the-stars Suss Cousins. Suss has invented a new vocabulary for an old art, and in the process developed a passionate following of young, hip knitters, including some of Hollywood's hottest stars. Rose McGowan, Julia Sweeney, Laurence Fishburne, and Bill Cosby count among her celebrity students and customers, and her designs have been worn on Friends, Frasier, and many movies and other TV shows.Bringing her ideas to a book for the first time, Suss invites knitters new and accomplished to make offbeat and colorful projects that are both elegant and wearable. Thirty projects with complete step-by-step instructions and illustrations are featured in Hollywood Knits, from adorable hats and scarves to gorgeous sweaters, throws, and even a cell phone holder, happily modeled by icons of Hollywood chic, such as Julianne Moore and Chanel model Kirsty Hume.Hollywood Knits closes with a resource guide that lists where you can buy quality yarns and Suss designs nationwide.-- Knitting has become a chic relaxation technique practiced by Julia Roberts, Sandra Bullock, and rafts of other style icons-- Hollywood stars, such as Julianne Moore, Julia Sweeney, Maud Adams, Noelle Beck, and Steve Weber have posed for the book-- The author has a strong national presence in both the retail market and the press-- The 30 featured Suss designs are lush, stylish, and paired with precise instructions and patterns
Suss Cousins grew up in Sweden, where her grandmother taught her to knit, and moved to New York in 1982. Her knitwear took off when actress Noelle Beck began to wear Suss's sweaters - and everyone wanted to know where she'd found them. Before long, Suss was designing Bill Cosby's sweaters for The Cosby Show. In 1991 she opened a retail shop in Los Angeles where she taught knitting and sold her clothing. She also continued to design for film and TV, including such films as The Matrix, Scooby Doo, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and such TV series as Friends, Ally McBeal, Frasier, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. In addition, Suss Design has licensing deals to children's wear, launching this year, including an Eloise line for fall. Karen Knauer is a fashion and commercial photographer who lives in Santa Monica, CA.
