Knitting is no longer just a grandmother's pastime! This extraordinary guide for the newer or younger knitter introduces classic and contemporary patterns that can be completed in a reasonable time, with clear, precise instructions. The creative, hip, and diverse designs include a boyfriend's sweater, chunky scarf, halter top, colour block tote bag, cute mittens, mismatched striped socks, and much more. Each project is rounded out with a mini-lesson that covers such practical skills as fringing and striping, circular knitting, working with double pointed needles, and creating decorative edges and decreases. This collection is the beginner's single source for getting started and having fun with chic designs that will never go out of style.

About the Author

Judith L Swartz learned to knit when she was eight, the same year she aquired Duchess, her first dog - for whom she knitted her first sweater. Swartz's career in textile design includes developing patterns for yarn companies, publishers and private clients, and she also teaches classes and workshops in knitting and crochet. She has designed hats for Smiley Hats and Roffe Skiwear, and created a sweater for Fred 'Mr Rogers' Rogers, commisioned by McDonald's. She lives in Spring Green, Wisconsin.


"...This engaging collection of new and 'hip' patterns invites personal creativity into each design... a perfect guide for knitters of all levels..." -- Ultimate Knitting. "Guaranteed to appeal to the pickiest fashionista... but don't equate hip with trendy. The patterns are built on the classics..." -- Family Circle Easy Knitting. "Here's a book with all the patterns that every new knitter asks for..." -- Bust magazine. "These easy, quick-to-knit projects are perfect for instant-gratification knitting..." -- Knitter's Magazine. "...features fashion forward patterns like hippie-chic tote bags and bold, chunky hats..." -- Grace magazine. "Geared to the young, new knitters (but still perfect for knitters over 35!) who want to experience the satisfaction of making something using their new-found skill and their own sense of style..." -- Knit It!. "...far more than just another 'golly, knitting is so cool and trendy' book... Swartz's loving and honest voice is a pleasure to read..." -- Knitter's
