Description

Beautiful photography, contemporary designs, and the appeal of small, quick-to-knit projects for anywhere and at anytime will make the Knitting Little Luxuries eBook your new favorite.

Pamper yourself and your friends with luxurious knitted gifts that can be made in no time. From a sumptuous striped cloche hat to a sophisticated wrap with delicate embroidery to fingerless mittens with lace edging, these quick-and-easy projects are stylish, luxurious, use small amounts of yarn, and can be created by even the novice knitter.

The Knitting Little Luxuries eBook is divided into four evocative chapter groups that showcase unique design elements and style trends.

  • "Eclectic and Quirky" features projects with special embellishments, stitch structures, and yarn combinations.
  • "Textured and Modern" features interesting stitch fabrics and design constructions that turn convention upside down.
  • "Pretty and Feminine" uses luxury fibers, texture, and lace stitches.
  • "Traditional and Folk" makes use of stitch patterns such as Fair Isle and Aran, all with a modern twist.

Projects range from hats, mittens, purses, wraps, tops, scarves, socks, and sweaters, and include additional variations using different yarns, edgings, stitches, or embellishments to provide extra inspiration for personalization.

Both beginning and experienced knitters looking for gorgeous gifts to knit will love the Knitting Little Luxuries eBook!
