Flowers are often symbolic and intertwined with life's most special occasions, from weddings and christenings to idyllic summer afternoons spent making daisy chains. To preserve memories of these special occasions, Dee Hardwicke has graphed motifs of a variety of flowers and leaves that can be used to knit intarsia motifs. She teaches you the basics of knitting intarsia, and then provides patterns to knit these motifs to create a gorgeous and meaningful quilt, shawl, project bag, pillow, bunting, or other project. Once you've learned the basics, if you want to go beyond Dee's motifs, she provides the chart and instructions to create your own.

The point of hen knitting is to open up creativity in a simple way. You can choose your colors and motifs and arrange them as your like, depending on your yarn stash. It's a great way to use up what yarn you have on hand. With hen knitting, you can use yarn like colored pencils, and arrange the motifs to express your own ideas. You can easily get started as you work one pattern band at a time. Tell a story with your garment, or share something of interest to you, such as gardening or your love of horses. You can also knit in the name of the recipient. These garments are especially fun to give to others, not to mention how nice it is to knit a garment for someone who will feel happy wearing it! A knitted garment is a gift with love in every stitch. If you give one away, you will warm the recipient in more ways than one.

Sometimes you don't know what your story is until you start to tell it. When my teacher, Ann, passed away suddenly nine months into my beginner knitting class, followed by my dad and then my mom, the book I was planning to write - a lighthearted collection of Ann's knitting tips and techniques - turned into something much deeper. As I followed the yarn where it led me, I discovered the ways in which my life was intertwined with Ann's, and, in the process, I began to uncover my own true story. "Tattoo this on your eyelids! This book is really really good....It's got everything going for it; funny stories, heart warming anecdotes, awesome information about how to take care of your knits, and a mass of other little facts and details that range form interesting to 'ohmergawd how did I not know this '," writes Theo DeAndrea "This book is without a doubt one of the most wonderful reads....Thanks to Reba, not only did Ann teach her class at the Y, but now us as well," says "MySistersKnitter."

“Different from any knitting book I’ve ever seen! Think of it as a journal of your life, not with pen and paper, but with knitting needles” (Lisa Congdon, author of Find Your Artistic Voice). Record the beauty, emotions, and experiences of everyday life—with your knitting needles! Author Lea Redmond offers thirty-two enchanting projects that will inspire you to create beautiful finished pieces full of personal meaning and memories. Stock up on shades of blue, gray, and white and knit one strip of a scarf each day for a year, using the color that matches the sky on that day. When you’re done, you’ll have a unique memento of your year better than anything you can keep in a scrapbook. Or when you’re traveling, knit postcard-size swatches at each place you visit, using the colors you see around you. When the trip is over, piece the swatches together into a throw or scarf that will remind you of your journey every time you use it. Or knit a height-chart scarf for a beloved baby, starting with her length at birth, then add inches each year until you have the perfect gift for her eighteenth birthday. These are knitting projects like no other, resulting in one-of-a-kind heirlooms that tell a story only you can tell. Redmond provides instructions for all the stitches and techniques you need, as well as required patterns. “In this charming book, Lea Redmond puts her big heart into creative knitting projects. She reminds us that the sky’s the limit—in knitting and in life.” —Ann Hood, author of The Knitting Circle “Not your usual book about knitting . . . [It] aspires to turn on your creativity, to awaken the designer within you.” —In Stitches

Knitting instruction and relationship therapy all in one—with lots of laughs along the way. For as long as women have been knitting, they’ve been knitting garments for men—only to have men hide their lovingly created pieces in drawers and closets. Men aren’t being intentionally cruel; they’re just not comfortable in knitwear made with bright colors, itchy yarn, or flashy designs. So what’s a knitter to do? Understand the male psyche, says knitting instructor Bruce Weinstein. In Knits Men Want he presents ten hilarious essays, each based on a rule that helps women knit for men successfully. “Men Are Babies” explains why guys need to wear soft fabrics. “Men Hate Fittings” describes how to create a sweater based on one that’s in his wardrobe. Following each essay is a timeless master pattern, from socks, hats, and scarves to an array of sweaters, all in a range of sizes and most written for multiple gauges. With this book in hand, women finally have the secret to knitting garments that men will appreciate and actually wear.

A top knitwear designer offers thirty-five retro-inspired patterns that put a new spin on fashion’s timeless trends. In fashion, one day you’re in, the next day you’re out . . . and the day after that, you’re back in again. Designers are always referring to fashion’s rich history as they imagine its present and future, and retro looks remain ever-fresh as they are renewed—and restyled—for the next generation of wearers. That’s precisely what top knitwear designer Véronik Avery is up to in Knitting Classic Style. Mining fashion’s endless archive, Avery has created 35 smashingly contemporary garments that take their cues from decades and designers past. The collection of clothing and accessories Avery presents is organized into four thematic chapters that highlight women’s wear, men’s wear (and its influence on women’s and children’s clothing), traditional ethnic garb, and sportswear. Aimed at both beginning and more advanced knitters, the book’s projects range in difficulty from a simple drawstring purse, French beret, and Afghan-inspired slipper-socks to a shawl-collared cardigan, a geometric ski sweater based on a popular 1950s Native American design, and Avery’s own reinterpretation of the trimly elegant Chanel jacket. The author introduces each project by explaining its historical/cultural roots; Sara Cameron’s moody photos evoke the settings that have inspired Avery’s reworkings of the classics.

What dog lover wouldn’t be delighted with a magnificent hand-knitted sweater for Fido--and what knitter wouldn’t be proud to create it? Dog sweaters can be made with leftovers from larger projects, and completed in the same time it takes to knit a hat, scarf, or mittens. There are eight basic patterns with variations, plus instructions for sizing up or down, three patterns for hard-to-fit breeds (Pugs, Chihuahuas, Dachshunds), four accessories (a snood, a hat, a kerchief, and a collar), and three home projects (a bed, a blanket, and a toy). Photos of pooches wearing the finished sweaters, plus start-to-finish instructions (including how to measure the dog) ensure a stylish look and a perfect fit.
