Merry Little Knits by Ann Kingstone
Knitters love to knit gifts for loved ones, hence the frequent references among knitters to ‘Christmas knitting’, ie projects intended to be Christmas gifts.
In Merry Little Knits, Ann Kingstone presents a collection of small projects specifically designed for this purpose, as well as a couple of decorative knits to cheer your home during the festive season. The book also includes some clearly illustrated tutorials for specialist techniques used in some of the patterns. All in a compact A5 format ideal for slipping into your project bag, or your beloved’s Christmas stocking!
The evocative vintage-style cover was created by the wonderfully talented Alex Tomlinson, and the photography was undertaken by Susan Campbell in Yorkshire.
The patterns comprise:
Dasher – a child’s stranded yoke cardigan
Nowell – ladies cabled slippers with pompom decoration
Strumflings – stranded mini stockings
Wassail Hat – cabled earflap hat with pompom decoration
Wassail scarf – reversible cable scarf to match the hat
Wenceslas – unisex slippers with embroidered clock decoration
Wesley Bobs – stranded baubles
