A garment knitted from side-to-side
A lace-patterned triangular shawl
A simple beanie (which demonstrates the usefulness of circular swatching)
Kate Davies was inspired to create Bold Beginner Knits for friend and bold beginner knitter, Jane Hunter. Each pattern was specifically created by Kate to introduce Jane to useful new techniques and different construction methods by knitting interesting designs that in no sense resemble beginner pieces. Unfamiliar techniques are introduced with links to relevant video tutorials, and from the straightforward pattern-writing style to the visual page layout, every element of Bold Beginner Knits is designed to be clear and easy to follow.
Whatever kind of knitter you are, you’ll love making and wearing these six appealing designs.
