These knitted and crocheted fashion accessories and decorative accents for the home vary in their required levels of skill, but all can be completed quickly and require only one skein of yarn. The stitch patterns and clear instructions make it easy for even procrastinators and the less-than-diligent to create a ruffled cravat, a drawstring bag, a tank top, cozy scarves, arm and leg warmers, lace wristlets, fingerless gloves, a mohair pillow, and even a sweater for a baby. Several projects do not require any new yarn at allâ€”instead projects such as the Felted Striped Tote or the Labyrinth Circle Rug are designed using up a skein’s worth of leftovers from other projects. A guide to terms and techniques, a resource directory, and a bibliography are also included.
Leigh Radford is the art director and knitwear designer for Interweave Knits, and the author of Alterknits: Imaginative Projects and Creativity Exercises. She lives in Portland, Oregon.
