I found three self-published (I think) books that seem very interesting:

Coop Knits Socks by Rachel Coopey
http://www.coopknits.co.uk/2013/04/coop-knits-socks-book.html
Patterns here

Botanical Knits by Alana Dakos
https://botanicalknits.com/patterns.php

The Knitter's Curiosity Cabinet Volume II by Hunter Hammersen
http://pantsvillepress.com/knitters-curiosity-cabinet/knitters-curiosity-cabinet-vol-ii/

Any other books you have seen or heard of?

Thanks for the links, Minh. I really like some of the sweaters in the Botanical Knits collection. The "Buds and Blooms" sweater has such a lovely collar.

I love the Botanical, but how do you buy it? The others
have a place to buy but I am not finding one on the Botanical. I love all the hats and 3 of the sweaters.

When you open the website, click on any of the designs. Scroll down to the bottom of the new window and see the buy button.
