Kate Atherley has her pulse on how modern knitters think about their knitting. Her patterns are clear, concise, and don't leave you in the dark. If you are looking for a "go-to" basic pattern resource this is it!
As I sat down to write a review this morning I stand by that quote wholeheartedly... this book is a great modern pattern resource! It's got basic patterns, written in at least two different gauges, for scarves, mittens, cowls, legwarmers, socks, and a variety of hat shapes. Kate delves into tips and tricks for all of these shapes, like working with the hole at the base of your thumb, and picking up stitches on a sock gusset.
reviewed Kate's first book, Beyond Knit and Purl last spring, and Knit Accessories is perfectly matched to build on the skills that she covered in it's pages.
So, guess what, lucky blog readers? Kate and Cooperative Press have offered a pdf copy of Knit Accessories to one lucky winner! So, leave a comment telling me what you think you'd love to make (or learn) with your copy if you were to win (with a way to get in touch with you) by the end of the day on Dec 23rd. I'll choose a winner and let you know who won later in the month!
