We’re participating in the blog tour for Kate Atherley’s new book Beyond Knit & Purl, released by Cooperative Press (and available in an easy PDF download).
Beyond Knit & Purl is the answer to the questions asked of Kate after 10 years teaching knitting – the questions that come after learning the two basic stitches, like “What’s a good first project?” and ” I’m tired of scarves. What’s next?” Not only will you find a wealth of tips, tricks, and advice, you’ll also find a wonderful collection of patterns to try out your new skills.
The chapters are set-up by topic: Choosing a Pattern, Prepping for Success, Working from a Pattern, What Patterns Don’t Tell You, Frequently Asked Questions, Shaping, In the Round, Socks, Cables, Lace, and Colorwork.
You’ll find great tips throughout the book, such as how to select the right size. There is also “Knitterly Advice” sprinkled throughout provided by knitters from all over.
Beyond Knit & Purl has fantastic step-by-step pictures of the skills that are detailed in the book. Not only is it great for new knitters, it is a splendid reference for the more seasoned knitter out there.
As if the tips, tricks, and skills weren’t enough, there are also fantastic patterns for everything from socks and lace to accessories.
Hop on over to the Cooperative Press website and take a peek at the preview!
