Publisher Comments:

In their bustling New York City yarn shop Julie Carles and Jordana Jacobsa.k.a. the Yarn Girlshave helped thousands of new and lapsed knitters rediscover the pleasures of knitting. Forget frumpy worsted wools and tiny needles; here are the gorgeous, wearable styles youve been looking for, with patterns that knit up so fast even inexperienced knitters can start a project on Saturday and wear it to work Monday morning. Made on big needles (sizes 9 to 36) and with a wide range of the chunky, luxurious new yarns that are now available, they couldnt be easier to create, or more fun to wear.

The Yarn Girls have selected thirty of their most popular basic-but-beautiful projects in a range of must-have styles, from trendy funnel-necks and classic cardigans to sexy tanks. Each project includes pointers to ensure that the finished project will fit properly and look like a million bucks. There are also patterns for creating accessories such as hats and scarves, as well as something for the guys and cozy throws for the home. Each pattern is designed to reinforce the fundamentals of knitting and help tentative knitters gain confidence. Clearly illustrated sections on techniques, plus a glossary and the Yarn Girls helpful tips throughout, practically guarantee a successful outcome the very first time.

Synopsis:

This lively, hip introduction to today's hottest hobby enables even beginners to re-create the stylish fashions found in upscale boutiques. In a friendly, down-to-earth style, the authors explain basic techniques, and then take readers step-by-step through ten projects. From simplified instructions to funky designs to easy-to-follow photographs, "The Yarn GirlsU Guide to Simple Knits" brings the style, pizzazz, and quick results for which new and born-again knitters are looking.
