Another boring scarf? More mittens? We're not gonna take it! And neither should you!

Pretty in Punk salutes counterculture fashion with 25 entirely original designs inspired by fashion icons Vivienne Westwood and John Galliano, and punk legends. Indulge your girly side with the Ready Steady Go mini skirt, rebel with Feel the Pain wrist cuffs, or channel your inner rock star with the very same Mohawk hat Depeche Mode's Martin Gore wears on stage. Whether you're new to knitting or a veteran desperately seeking patterns with an edge, you'll find projects here for every mood and every genre. With step-by-step instructions, helpful technical illustrations and intarsia graphs, plus high-fashion photos of all the finished projects, Pretty in Punk is the only authority on anti-authority knitting.

THIS BOOK IS WONDERFUL! if you want to knit for yourself or for young family & friends, then this is a great book to buy! many 'old school' knitters may gasp for air at the name of the book, but the patterns are beautiful and to die for! every single one could be knit exactly the way the pattern calls or exchange yarns for a custom look... it's endles, and the patterns are written like you're having a converstation, so they're easy to read & understand. everything is laid out well, in plain english, and if you are not cool before you started, you will be after you wear these! i've gotten only good responses by people of all ages from my 4yr old twin boys, to 'senior' citizens who walk by and catch me reading... YOU NEED THIS BOOK!
