By Wendy Freeman

Going beyond the usual knitting instructions, this wonderful mix-and-match book for first-time knitters is packed full of up-to-the-minute fashion ideas. Ten easy-to-knit projects give you the chance to practice as you learn from large color photographs of every technique. Cast on, learn the knit stitch and knit a few rows, then save your first sample swatches to make buttons! Soon you will learn the purl stitch and graduate as a purly queen - using just knit and purl stitches you can make plenty of patterns. Seed stitch is just one variation or combination possible. Special tips highlight every new technique. Before you know it, you will be ready for eyelets and more, making a knobbly, bobbly belt, a cozy cowl, or a headband and cuffs set with both buttons and pom-poms. Detailed and well-illustrated instructions show how to knit purses and bags, plus exactly how to put them together. A quirky poncho with huge tassels makes a real statement. The second half of this book introduces the hand-sewing tools and methods necessary for real fun in embellishments, from toy stuffing, pom-pom and lazy daisy templates through embroidery. Make felted flowers, garter-stitch covered buttons, knitted balls, spool knitted cord, and wiggly corkscrews. With pages that lie flat, this book makes an ideal project planner for weekends, rainy days, travel, or any time! An index, guide to suppliers, and traceable templates complete this useful book. Hardcover, spiral-bound. 154 pages. Barrons Educational Series, 2005.
