Overview

From Susan Cropper, owner of the critically acclaimed and wildly popular yarn store Loop, in London, here is a confectionary collection of pretty knit projects from more than a dozen top designers. Using a variety of different stitches and techniques, Pretty Knits contains an endless array of fashionable and flirty ideas for garments and home decor.

The book is divided into four chapters–Flirty Fashionista, which includes super-glam garments; Divine Accessories, with pretty fashion pieces for every occasion; Beautiful Boudoirs, indulgent furnishings for seductive bedrooms; and Feminine Fripperies, gorgeous accessories for anywhere in the home.

You’ll also find a basic instruction section devoted entirely to stitches, perfect for picking up a new technique or solidifying an old skill, as well as embellishment ideas for almost every project, using sewing notions like beads, buttons, and ribbons.
