If you think knitting is too square for you, think again! Here's the most fun collection of fresh, innovative projects ever to hit the pages of a book.
Funky Knits is organized into themed sections to suit you and all your hip friends from domestic goddesses to skater boys: Urban Playground, Night Owls, Home Comforts, Punk Garage Rocks, and Festival Folk (not to mention introductory and technique chapters that get you down to the knitty-gritty with a minimum of fuss).
Choose from more than 30 wild designs, like the super-easy (and strong!) key chain, the great knee pads, the kooky cacti (never needs watering!), and the fun-but-practical fruit protectors.
And there are some tried-and-true designs like hoodies, scarves, fingerless gloves, and hats - after all, if you gotta stay warm, why not look cool? You'll love the variety of soft, colorful yarns we've used, too - including the ecologically minded market bag to knit with plastic grocery bags.
It's all here: the techniques, the how-to, the yarn-selection advice, the photos and illustrations, and enough designs to get you itching to stitch. So stop twiddling your thumbs - grab your needles and some friends, and get together with Funky Knits!
