Remember when you finally learned how to ride your bike? Wasn't that an awesome day? Jen & Jim haven't forgotten how great it felt to take the stabilisers off, so they create another brand new year of learning for you to enjoy. Twelve new techniques, twelve patterns from twelve fabulous designers, twelve sets of photo and video tutorials, and most importantly, twelve opportunities for you to experience the joy of mastering something new!
Boost Your Knitting is a completely self-contained programme that will grow your skills and build your confidence in your knitting. It follows a similar format to their first book, A Year of Techniques, but does not require any previous knowledge from that collection.
Each of the monthly projects is for an accessory, allowing you to complete each project in a reasonable amount of time. The projects are accompanied by stepwise photo tutorials as well as online video tutorials.
