"At The Crochet Project we love a good shawl, perfect for all year round wear. It needs to have beautiful drape and an interesting pattern. A shawl is a perfect blank canvas for trying a new stitch pattern or technique. They are portable, quickly achievable and can be made from relatively little yarn. In this book we share our love of shawls and show you the secrets of shaping them, tips for incorporating stitch patterns and a beautiful pattern demonstrating each shape. All the examples use just one 100g skein of 4ply yarn, making these patterns the perfect stash buster or excuse to buy a special skein. Whether you’d like to make your first shawl, learn to design your own or just understand a little more about what makes them so special, this is the book for you.Patterns are written using UK crochet terminology with US conversions given in the abbreviations section. Patterns are charted where appropriate. Schematics are provided throughout.A code to download a free pdf version of the book is included in the price. This copy is for personal use only. To download follow the instructions on the back inside cover." (Bron: The Crochet Project)

"Ìle ghorm an fheòir / green grassy Islay, is a beautiful and fascinating Hebridean island, and a place with a particularly special meaning for Kate Davies.In this stunning new collection with her own Buachaille yarn, Kate takes inspiration from Islay’s landscape to create twelve new designs. From modern haps to traditional kilt hose; from Fairisle hoodies to cabled cardigans; the designs are arranged in four “stories” each of which explores a different island locale. With their roots in Islay’s distinctive history and culture, Kate’s designs suggest the rich breadth and depth of inspiration the island affords, from the archaeological legacy of the Lords of the Isles to the poetry and song of the Islay bards. In addition to Kate’s patterns, this book brings together beautiful photography of Islay by Tom Barr with essays by four contributors who share their varied local expertise. Gordon Yates introduces Islay’s wildlife, Anna MacQuarrie explores the important legacy of Gaelic in the island landscape, Jane Hunter explores Islay’s geology through the intriguing medium of tweed and stitches, while Susan Campbell tells us more about the island’s handcrafts. Open the pages of this beautiful book, join Kate on a journey to the Hebrides, and you too will be Inspired by Islay." (bron: Ravelry)Ravelrypagina
Yup. We do.
It’s an ever-increasingly digital world: people stare at little screens all day, with nothing to show for it when the power goes off.
More and more we are turning to traditional crafts to redress the balance, and for many, that means knitting.
I want to challenge the commonly held ‘misperception’ that knitting is a feminine pursuit – GUYS KNIT is a beginner’s guide to knitting, and it is aimed specifically at men.
So I set out to write a manual that a guy might notice in a shop, and think to himself: that’s a book that represents me, and who I am. I wanted to do that because I am a guy. I’ve always championed male knitters, and together, we can overthrow the ridiculous notion that guys don’t, or shouldn’t knit. We do. And we should.
So if you are that guy in the shop, holding this manual in your hand, let me answer the question you’ve probably been asking yourself since you picked it up:
Yes. Knitting is for you. And this is the manual to teach you.
• From zero knowledge to hero knitter
• Five specially designed patterns: three hats, one scarf, and a pair of socks
• Step-by-step tutorials – tonnes of supporting info
• Handy hints, tips, tricks and things to watch out for
• 25 online videos supporting all the tutorials in the manual
• Scan the QR code by each tutorial for direct access to the vids.
Let op: dit boek is Engelstalig!
