The Knitster is an original, highly illustrated project-based knitting book (with a little crocheting thrown in for good measure). The 25 projects range in skill level - from the basics to more advanced techniques - and are designed to appeal to women and men! Clothing projects include a hooded infinity scarf, a slouchy hipster hat (knit in a bare yarn then dyed ombre), a freestyle bow tie, a colour-blocked drop-sleeve sweater, and mismatched mittens connected with an i-cord (a grown up twist on a kid's look!). Projects for the house include a zigzag throw, a patterned floor cushion - and a cute ice-cream pint cozy (to keep your hands warm and the ice cream cold!).
