You won’t believe what you can make with knitted circles!


One circle can become a stylish hat or an adorable shrug. Two, and you have a unique handbag or cover-up. Knit more circles, and you can make show-stopping scarves, capes, sweaters, afghans—even a stunning lace dress.

Only Nicky Epstein, always on the cutting edge of knitwear design, could dream up these innovative garments and accessories that all start with a simple shape. In her bestselling book Knitting Block by Block, Nicky elevated the humble block to outstanding fashion, but that was just the beginning. Now she takes on a new challenge and shows you how to make a statement with circles.

Mix and match to your heart’s content with 100 circles and 20 inspiring projects that feature everything from cables to rich colorwork, delicate lace, and over-the-top embellishments in Nicky’s signature style. You’ll find step-by-step techniques on how to knit circles, both in the round and flat, plus expert guidance on customizing the projects, with unique cut-and-paste circle templates to design your own styles.

With this groundbreaking book, you’ll never look at circles the same way. Once again, Nicky Epstein has outdone herself, opening up a world of creative possibilities with a gorgeous knitting reference that will have you knitting in the best of circles over and over.

The instructions, photos, examples are exquisite. Once again Nicky has set a standard for creative books but raised her own bar by
allowing us ...the reader...the crafter... to enter into her world of imaginiation and technique to use her patterns to put together
our own heirloom. Thank you Nicky for setting such an example of a GOOD book for novice and expert to ooh and ahh across the pages
until we find "the pattern" which challenges us to make the perfect garment or gift.
