Overview

These knitted and crocheted fashion accessories and decorative accents for the home vary in their required levels of skill, but all can be completed quickly and require only one skein of yarn. The stitch patterns and clear instructions make it easy for even procrastinators and the less-than-diligent to create a ruffled cravat, a drawstring bag, a tank top, cozy scarves, arm and leg warmers, lace wristlets, fingerless gloves, a mohair pillow, and even a sweater for a baby. Several projects do not require any new yarn at all—instead projects such as the Felted Striped Tote or the Labyrinth Circle Rug are designed using up a skein's worth of leftovers from other projects. A guide to terms and techniques, a resource directory, and a bibliography are also included.

Library Journal
All knitters and crocheters have yarn stash-those leftover balls and skeins stashed around the house, in the car trunk, and even in rented storage facilities. Radford (art director, Interweave Knits magazine; AlterKnits: Imaginative Projects and Creativity Exercises) has come up with a variety of small projects suitable for stash busting. Most require the equivalent of one skein of yarn, while others, like the gorgeous labyrinth circle rug, are designed to use up numerous bits and pieces of leftover yarn that might otherwise be discarded. Projects include accessories like gloves, hats, bags, and leg warmers; baby items; felted bowls; and decorative knitted cupcakes. This high-quality project book is recommended for public libraries.

    Love this book!

    If you like to knit this is a great book. It has simply but beautiful items to make. Even if you just starting out it's a great book for beginners also, and only one skein who knew.
