Luxury Yarn One-Skein Wondersby Judith Durant
Synopses & Reviews
Single-skein projects are all the rage — portable, fun, quick to finish, and the perfect solution for that stash of orphan yarns. Already, Judith Durant's One-Skein Wonders series has delighted knitters everywhere with fabulous single-skein patterns contributed by some of North America's favorite yarn shops and noted knitwear designers.
Now, Luxury Yarn One-Skein Wonders, the third book in this popular series, brings indulgence to the one-skein concept. These one-skein patterns are decadent and delicious, featuring the most sumptuous yarns on the market, from snuggle-worthy cashmere to exquisite qiviut, and from lustrous alpaca to ecofriendly soy, corn, and bamboo yarns. Pattern contributors include designers, yarn manufacturers, and well-known knitting and crocheting teachers, and projects include baby items, personal accessories, toys, and garments — everything from an adorable baby sweater knit from merino and bamboo to beaded cashmere socks. Not only are these projects fun and fast, they give you a great excuse to pick up a skein of to-die-for yarn.
With Luxury Yarn One-Skein Wonders, knitters who crave something special can create fabulous, heirloom-worthy projects without breaking the bank.
