There are over 40 projects in the special issue to challenge and delight knitters of all experience levels.
Travel from Africa and Egypt to Europe to America in just 148 pages and 45 projects! Learn different methods of using color, texture, and lace, plus read all of the companion stories for historical context. You’ll even learn about nålbinding—the craft that came before knitting.
Explore the rich knitting traditions of the British Isles, Switzerland, Norway, Estonia, Russia, Asia, East India, and the South American Andes. Return to the US and unique stories that could only come from the prairies out west.
