Specs & Details
Jen Arnall-Culliford is one of our favorite teachers. With this colorful book, she presents a brand-new year of learning for you to enjoy. Twelve new techniques, twelve patterns from fabulous designers, twelve sets of photo and video tutorials, and most important, twelve opportunities for you to experience the joy of mastering something new!
Boost Your Knitting is a self-contained program that will grow your skills and build your confidence in your knitting. It follows a similar format to Jen and Jim’s first book, A Year of Techniques, but does not require any previous knowledge from that collection.
Each of the monthly projects is for an accessory, allowing you to complete each project in a reasonable amount of time. The projects are accompanied by step-by-step photo tutorials as well as online video tutorials, and you can join in with the knitalong threads for each project over in the Boost Your Knitting Ravelry group.
