35 beautifully simple designs to knit in natural yarns
Mrs. Moon brings you stitch-by-stitch proof that it can be super-simple to create modern-casual knitted clothes, accessories, and homewares. There are quick-to-knit pieces that you can make in a day, through to more ambitious projects that will take a weekend or longer, and will introduce novice knitters to techniques such as cables, colorwork, and chunky lace. From an easy-knit Sloppy Joe sweater that will become a favorite wardrobe staple to a brioche scarf that uses a beautifully simple stitch pattern, or a zigzag-stripe throw in delicious colors to a textured bolster, and from a delightfully droopy bunny to a cute baby beanie, there are projects here for you, your home, and your family, whatever your level of knitting knowledge. A techniques section covers everything you need to know to get started, from casting on to making up, and each project is given a suggested timing, so you know roughly how quickly it can be completed. Mrs. Moon is a successful business run by Karen Miller and Susan Ritchie, who design patterns and teach knitting as well as selling yarn online. Their constant interaction with knitters of all levels of skill and all kinds of tastes have given them a wonderful insight in to the types of projects knitters crave, and this book is filled with items that will have fingers itching to knit.
