Dazzling Knits Print On Demand Edition

Overview

Turn basic shapes into fashion statements with a simple "modular" method! The technique works like a puzzle: start by knitting one shape, and then build on that by knitting additional shapes to create a finished garment. Includes 14 vest, jacket, and coat designs. Projects rely on easy-to-knit shapes such as squares, shells, cubes, and triangles. Featured knits spotlight vibrant, bold colors, as well as alternate versions in more classic colors.

    Deceptively Easy to Do!

    I am a novice knitter, with several scarves and a couple of hats under my belt, so I bought this book for 'inspiration only.' I am pleased to say that I am able to begin knitting these projects! The directions are clear and easy to understand, and you can create these beautiful, artistic items with mere scrap yarn from your stash. Go for it, I say!!
