Knockout Knits: New Tricks for Scarves, Hats, Jewelry, and Other Accessories
Knitters love accessories. They're fast, often require only a skein or two of yarn, and make amazingly versatile gifts for friends and family. Small knits are also the perfect way to try something new - an unusual stitch pattern, wild multicolored yarn, or even a touch of sparkle. Laura Nelkin is well-known for designing these fun-to-knit little projects, introducing her students and fans to advanced techniques with her signature "You can do it!" enthusiasm. In her first book, she shares her three favorite types of knitting, which include wrapped stitches, lacework, and beads. Each chapter begins with a quick knitted cuff to lay the foundations, then gradually ramps up to more complicated designs. The result is an all-new collection of wearable, feminine knits with a slightly rustic aesthetic. Give them as gifts, stockpile for a chilly day, or dress up a casual outfit - these are patterns to enjoy knitting again and again.
