Knitting is the new must-do 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.
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.
