Overview

Beginning knitters: graduation day has come! Two designers from the highly regarded Trendsetter Yarn Company have created a collection of projects that will painlessly take novices to the next level.

What's a newly avid knitter to do when she's mastered the scarf and wants to go beyond? Too many books just repeat the same group of basics, while others set the goal too high for anyone who's not a whiz with the needles. Innovative Knitovation solves the problem, showing just how easy it can be to create something sensational while gaining proficiency at the same time. These are high-end, sophisticated fashions, with slightly more advanced skills—but all you need to know to begin is how to knit a simple square, rectangle, or triangle. At the start of each design, drawings show every piece that goes into the final product; then, there are unique techniques for putting them together for a finished item that fits beautifully and looks great.
