Big, Bold, Beautiful Knits Perfect for Beginners (and Procrasti-Knitters)

With big needles and oversized yarn, anyone can knit up fun, stylish patterns in a flash! Alyssarhaye Graciano, knitwear designer and founder of BlackSheepMade, filled this book with quick projects perfect for your friends, family, pets and home.

Especially good for beginners, thick yarn makes it easy to see all of your stitches as you’re working. Even if you mess up, bulkier yarns make it simple to find and fix your mistakes. Experienced knitters can zip through last minute gifts (the Cascades Cowl only takes two hours!) and traditionally time-consuming large-scale projects like the extra cozy Homebody Blanket.

Try your hand at arm knitting with eye-catching knits like the Hella Big Arm Knit Scarf, add a pop of color to your home with Ember’s Circle Rug or even bring some funky style to your wardrobe with cute accessories like the retro PNW Beanie or the striking Radius Hooded Cowl! With this book full of no-fail patterns and a basketful of chunky yarns, you can learn new stitches with confidence and have cool custom pieces in no time at all.
