This title features wearable, feminine knits with a rustic aesthetic. Knitting accessories is fast, fun and often requires only a skein or two of yarn. Small knits are the perfect way to try something new and experiment with advanced techniques. Who doesn't love to knit accessories? They're fast, often, require only a skein or two of yarn, and make amazingly versatile gifts for friends and family. Small knits are also the perfect way to try something new - an unusual stitch pattern, wild multi-coloured yarn, or even a touch of sparkle. Laura Nelkin is well-known for designing these fun-to-knit little projects introducing her students and fans to advanced techniques with her signature 'You can do it! enthusiasm. In her first book, she share her 3 favourite types of knitting using wrapped stitches, lacework, and beads. Each chapter begins with a quick knitted cuff to lay the foundations, then gradually ramps up to more complicated designs. The result is an all-new collection of wearable, feminine knits with a slightly rustic aesthetic. Give them as gifts, stockpile for a chilly day, or dress up a casual outfit--these are knockout projects to enjoy knitting again and again.
