Knitting Bag of Tricks bookRegular price $22.99
Want to take your knitting to the next level? Explore the ‘why’ of knitting, as well as the ‘how,’ with beloved knitting teacher Patty Lyons and her new book!
Solve your knitting problems—from edges that won’t behave to getting your yarn tension right—with over 70 brand new knitting hacks! Inspired by questions asked by Patty’s students from around the world, this book features tutorials for knitters of all levels. It also features over 200 technical illustrations to help you learn new skills with clear step-by-step instructions.
This isn’t like other ‘how to knit’ books with basic information about casting on and how to form stitches (although there is a handy how-to reference section at the back for when you need a refresher), this is a book about the ‘why’ of knitting. Not about ‘why we knit’ but about ‘why we knit the way we do’. By digging deeper into the ‘why’ Patty doesn’t just fix your knitting problems she helps you to truly understand why the yarn/stitches/needles/tension are acting in a certain way and how to fix any issues.
She starts by looking at the basics and explores the anatomy of a stitch, examining how this affects the look, feel and shape of the finished knitted fabrics and how different knitting techniques affect the finished outcome. Patty examines the problems caused by common mistakes that many knitters make without even noticing before diving into more complex knitting issues and how to trouble shoot them. All of Patty’s techniques and tips are illustrated with detailed step-by-step artworks for absolute clarity.
Cartoons by fan-favorite illustrator Franklin Habit and Patty’s own humorous ‘purls’ of wisdom will resonate with knitters of all abilities and have you laughing while you learn.
Discover why more than 100,000 knitters have taken classes with Patty—including Cadence!
