Knitting is a new and favorite pastime for the young and the young at heart. The take-along character of knitting is a great fit with active, on-the-go lifestyles, and its high-touch, low-stress character is the perfect antidote for the hurry-up syndrome. No wonder so many busy young professionals are taking up knitting.

And now in the convenience of an eBook, Hip to Knit is an engaging collection of quick and easy patterns with simple, clear instructions. Illustrated mini-lessons build basic skills as one project leads to the next. A chunky scarf, a halter top, mix-and-match striped socks, tote bags, a boyfriend sweater, a big-needle sweater coat—they form an irresistible fashion parade of fun things to make. New knitters will learn the mysteries of shaping, circular knitting, color striping, double-pointed needles, and more. Hip to Knit is a great resource for getting started, being creative, and having a wonderful time with designs that are easy to adapt and personalize. Not only will your designs and pastimes be extra hip but this must-have eBook will catch a few eyes as well!
