On Friday we gave away a free knitted notebook project from Erika Knight’s Simple Knitting: A Complete How-to-Knit Workshop with 20 Projects. If you’ve completed that project and want more, well, you’re in good company. Luckily, we’re giving away twenty copies of Simple Knitting on Goodreads this week. But you’d better get clicking because the contest ends Thursday.
Acclaimed knitwear designer Erika Knight turns her attention to the novice knitter in Simple Knitting, a workshop-based book that teaches you how to knit by creating a beautiful collection of items. With each of the twenty projects you learn a new skill, and build upon the techniques learned with the proceeding project until you have mastered a wide repertoire of skills and amassed an enviable collection of gorgeous knitwear.
- Master basic knit, purl stitches, and variations by creating a simple scarf, dishcloth, or notebook cover
- Learn shaping and finishing techniques by knitting up a ribbed watch cap, fingerless mittens, or a pair of striped socks
- Lastly, perfect your skills for fully fashioning garments while creating a simple V-neck sweater or a classic cardigan complete with handy pockets.
Erika explains all the essential information to successfully knit up these projects and also discusses broader design principles such as building a color palette, providing readers with a unique opportunity to learn design secrets from one of the world’s most highly-respected knitwear designers.
