Synopsis

The slow, mindful craft of hand knitting is good for the planet and good for the mind. Meditative and fulfilling, it gives crafters a sense of accomplishment as well as a unique final product. In Knit, knitwear designer and ROWS founder Alice Hoyle shows you how to create dynamic pieces with creative and inspiring techniques. Along with 16 gorgeous projects, this book covers:

· Yarn Choice: How yarn choice and colour can transform projects.
· Stash Yarn: How to easily use leftover half balls of yarn from other projects to create amazing things.
· Scrap Yarn: Thrumming technique to use up tiny scraps leftover from other projects.
· Upcycling: Cutting up existing materials to create yarn.
· Reuse: How to unwind an existing jumper to reuse the yarn.
· Interesting and inspiring stitch techniques to use in the projects.
· How to take care of your knitwear, such as blocking, storing, getting rid of bobbles/pilling, fixing holes.

Knitting allows people to consciously slow down and make a connection to each piece they make, creating unique stories and imperfections that will be carried around for years to come. There is something incredibly exciting and freeing in the ability to make anything with just your hands, needles and yarn.
