Adventure Knitting: A Day in the Woods
Short Description: Go on a knitting adventure by making choices each step of the way on an expedition to your perfect custom item! Choose to make a hat, mitts, a cowl, or a coffee cup sleeve, pick any yarn weight, and make your piece custom sized - the modular construction lets you size it as you go (no gauge swatch needed), connecting all sections with short rows, no picked up stitches and little to no seaming, depending on your choices. Each of the three sections has three or four stitch pattern options, and all sections can be made in a single color, or two or more colors; the choices are all yours to make!
Gauge: any gauge
Finished Measurements: any sizes
Materials Used: any type of yarn(s), most items take approximately 1 skein worth (the cowl can take 2-3 skeins worth, depending on size choices), in 1 or more colors
Needle Size: needles sized to match yarn weight; all items are knit in the round, so they use circular needles and/or double points, depending on the item and personal preference
Pattern Includes: mix and match patterns for hats, mitts, cowls, and coffee cup sleeves, 20 different stitch patterns, all written and charted, how-to’s for many of the techniques used (like provisional cast-on and grafting, which are both completely optional), helpful notes about the construction, the increases, and more, as well as drawings, photos and descriptions of eight different sample knits, and the whole thing written as an adventure in the woods!
Skill Level: adventurous beginner / intermediate and up (the stitch patterns range in difficulty level, and the construction mostly just requires trust and the ability to follow directions as written)
Other Details: This is a paperback book, 8.25 x 5.25 inches and 32 pages. With all the options mixed and matched with each other, this collection can potentially make well over a hundred different items, and that’s not taking into account that any item can be made with any weight yarn. This is the kind of book that can be used over and over again, as a stash-buster, quick gift maker, a way to learn new techniques, and just a generally fun way to knit custom accessories!
