Tip Knits by Ann Kingstone
Put your passion in your fashion!
They provide us with the best fibre known to humankind, so of course we knitters love sheep! This book celebrates this love with 7 garments and accessories that all feature sheepy motifs. With 2 adult sweater options, a child’s cardigan, socks, a hat, cowl, and fingerless mittens, there’s lots for ewe to choose from!
Each project in Tup Knits is a seamless knit, worked in the round. The sweaters and cardigan are all worked from the top down, with short rows to drop the front neck. The child’s cardigan includes a steek for the front opening. Hence the book includes tutorials for short rows, stranded colourwork, and steeking.
All yarns used in the book are pure British wool yarns, made with wool from British sheep. These may be substituted with wool in equivalent yarn weights from non-British sheep, or even (gasp!) non-wool yarns.
