Knitting is no longer just a grandmother's pastime! This extraordinary guide for the newer or younger knitter introduces classic and contemporary patterns that can be completed in a reasonable time, with clear, precise instructions. The creative, hip, and diverse designs include a boyfriend’s sweater, chunky scarf, halter top, color block tote bag, cute mittens, mismatched striped socks, and much more. Each project is rounded out with a mini-lesson that covers such practical skills as fringing and striping, circular knitting, working with double pointed needles, and creating decorative edges and decreases. This collection is the beginner’s single source for getting started and having fun with chic designs that will never go out of style.
