Easy Crochet Weekend
30 Quick Projects to Make and WearBook - 2013
Easy Knitting Chic is packed with 30 knitting patterns that are as much fun to make as to wear. 'Chic' doesn't mean wearing the same look. Whether you're looking to create for a luxurious pashmina for evening wear, a quirky Peruvian-style hat, or maybe a boyfriend sweater for laid-back Sunday-morning style, you'll find plenty of options to suit your taste. Easy Knitting Chic has twelve tops--including cardigans, wrap-sweaters, ponchos and capes--as well as scarves, hats, bags and gloves.
The knitting patterns are easy to follow, and fun to make. From tassels to picot edgings, lacy openwork to cables, these knitting patterns will have you breaking out your knitting needles to try something new. Each project has the skill level indicated, but don't be afraid to try a fun new technique. Specifics on tricky or new knitting techniques are broken out within projects as step-by-step photo tutorials. If you want some guidance on how to create that open work pattern, or working the slipstitch and cable pattern, it's right there at your fingertips.
Want to swap the yarn? No problem! In addition to listing the specific yarn used, the key characteristics that make it suitable for the project are described, making it easier for you to make yarn substitutions.
