  • About the Edition

    A new collection of 30 projects that will take you on knitting adventures. Gardiner and Shayne wind their way through patterns for adults, children and homes, including patterns by other knitwear designers such as Bonne Marie Burns. Helpful and humorous sidebars discuss the pitfalls of the sweater coat (including bathrobe syndrome), the beauty of Shetland wool, how to make a stitch marker out of citrus peel or tin foil, and the Holy Crap moment, where a pattern breakthrough occurs. Gardiner and Shayne alternate personal anecdotes throughout, with an especially enjoyable piece by Shayne about participating in the Tennessee State Fair knitting contest.

The versatility of this book is pretty impressive all around.

    Change the charts as follows: make a purl mark in the square above the square where a purl stitch is shown. Oh yeah — and the rubber glove liners and the re-usable knitted Swiffer covers…well, those are actually pretty whimsical and okay, too. Lucky for knitters everywhere, she returned to knitting with a vengeance. Seriously, beat that. The squares with the original purl stitches should be worked as knit stitches. I've Overfelted the Bag!

    There are other knits for your home here, too. And I can only put one item in the miscellaneous category. The pictures are great and give you a crystalline idea about what the knits really look like. Note to readers: if you purchase something through one of our affiliate links we may earn a commission.
