We’re loving the trend for personalised crafts, and the alphabet knitting patterns in new book, Knit The Alphabet, fit perfectly into this category. Now you can create 3-dimensional words, initials and names with just some yarn and your knitting needles!
Knit the entire alphabet with these 26 alphabet knitting patterns! All of the letters are quick and easy to make, and are all made as one piece (so there’s no need to sew a seam). You can make each letter in your choice of three sizes (approximately 8cm (3.5in), 16cm (6.5in) or 28cm (11in) tall), and the completed letters are great for accessories, gift wrapping and home décor. Be creative with individual letters or combine them to create words, names and phrases using your favourite yarns. For a quirky look, words can be made with different sizes of letters too!
There are also three bonus patterns included in the book, which can be used with the letters or independently. There’s a star pattern, which would make a fantastic cushion for a child’s bedroom. The ampersand and heart are great for weddings and anniversaries – use them as decorations for a party or give them as gifts. We love the idea of creating the happy couple’s initials to display on their big day!
The book includes full basic knitting techniques, so it’s perfect for beginners, and you can easily make the letters in colours and patterns to suit you. Learn how to add stripes to your letters (great for using up scraps of yarn) to make your own unique designs.
