This book is all about pampering yourself and your friends with luxurious knitted gifts you can make in no time.
Pamper yourself and your friends with luxurious knitted gifts that can be made in no time. From a sumptuous striped cloche hat to a sophisticated wrap with delicate embroidery to fingerless mittens with lace edging, these quick-and-easy projects are stylish, luxurious, use small amounts of yarn, and can be created by even the novice knitter. Knitting Little Luxuries is divided into four evocative chapter groups that showcase unique design elements and style trends. “Details” looks to the vintage, eclectic, and quirky, featuring projects with special embellishments, stitch structures, and yarn combinations. “Urban” addresses organic, sassy, and edgy looks, with projects featuring interesting stitch fabrics and design constructions that turn convention upside down. “Luxury” is steeped in girly, pretty, and feminine inspirations using luxury fibers, texture, and lace stitches. “Warmth” makes use of traditional stitch patterns such as Fair Isle and Aran, all with a modern twist. Projects range from hats, mittens, purses, wraps, tops, scarves, socks, and sweaters, and include additional variations using different yarns, edgings, stitches, or embellishments to provide extra inspiration for personalization. Beautiful photography, contemporary designs, and the appeal of small, quick-to-knit projects will make Knitting Little Luxuries the new favorite of both beginning and experienced knitters looking for gorgeous gifts to knit.
