Soon to follow this inspired fame, was Stephanie Meyer with her Twilight Series. Like Harry Potter, The Twilight Series soon became an international best seller, spawning a series of movies that have been major box office hits. Many Indy Dyers can’t keep up with the orders that sport Twilight inspired colorways and for knitting fans, Ravelry boasts 24 Twilight inspired groups for you to join, including many knit-alongs. Be sure to check out patterns that have been inspired by this movie too. The most popular is the cabled Bella’s Mittens by Marielle Henault. Also, be sure to check out Nancy Fry’s Twilight inspired patterns on Ravelry.
