Fun and Funky - Fun & Funky Knitting: 30 Great Accessories to Inspire (Fun and Funky)

By Emma King

Knitting is hot news, with Nicole Kidman and Kate Winslet both admitting to picking up their needles between takes. It’s easy, amazingly versatile and often very quick – but there are not many exciting patterns out there for the young and fashionable woman. This book aims to change all that.

With knitting touted as the new yoga, it comes as no surprise that everyone is picking up a pair of needles – from A-list celebrities to cosmopolitan hipsters to trendy teenagers. Whether you’re a first-time knitter or a stitch maven, there is nothing more gratifying than stitching up hand-made gifts for yourself and friends – especially stylish accessories which require little investment in time or yarn.

 

From a Boho-chic shoulder bag to whimsical striped leg warmers to a sophisticated hat, Fun & Funky Knitting brims with thirty hip and edgy designs geared towards young crafters. If you’re new to the subject, a basics section teaches you the essentials such as casting on and off and knit and purl. Moreover, each design is accompanied by full-colour photography and easy-to-follow instructions to make the knitting process a breeze.
