Winter is on its way and the nights have already started to get colder so this is a great time to pick up your needles and get knitting. If you haven’t knitted before, Prima’s latest title on knitting is the perfect book to teach you how to get started!
With 25 quick and simple projects to knit, Prima Crafts: Knitting has a wide range of ideas for a beginner knitter. From a beautiful beaded scarf and a stripey bling cushion to a gorgeous multi-coloured iPad case and a polka dot pan holder, there are variety of fun and practical projects to suit everyone. There are also some quirky occasion-themed projects like a pumpkin tea cosy for Halloween and a knitted Easter bunny. You could even get the little ones involved with the easy-peasy snake scarf!
Clear step-by-step instructions will guide you through each project. There is also a handy techniques section at the back with tips on yarn, needles, working with colour, how to read patterns, abbreviations you need to know and all those crucial stitches too.
This adorable book is perfect if you’re on the go, as it’s small enough to fit snuggly into your handbag. So if you’re travelling by train, boat or car, Prima Crafts: Knitting is a great companion as you fill those hours of potential boredom and keep your hands occupied. The cute Kitten Mittens are one of my favourite projects and they’d be perfect for a long journey as they’re small and don’t require much yarn.
Whether you’re a complete beginner or have knitted before, Prima Crafts: Knitting is the perfect rainy day book when you’re stuck indoors with nothing to do. Packed with a mixture of both small and larger projects, these knits would make perfect gifts for all of your friends and family.
How about getting into the Christmas spirit early with these tempting fun Christmas puds or knitting your own pretty fairy to top your tree in time for the festive season? You won’t be short of ideas with this fantastic book!
