PATTY LYONS' KNITTING BAG OF TRICKS: Book & Workbook Bundle Preorder

Do you wish your knitting was better and that you had an expert knitter by your side to help you when it goes wrong? Then this is the book bundle for you.

The bundle includes Patty Lyons groundbreaking Knitting Bag of Tricks and Knitting Bag of Tricks: The Offical Workbook. 

Knitting Bag of Tricks
Patty Lyons is an expert in all things knitting related. She will help you solve all of your knitting problems--from edges that won't behave to adjusting your yarn tension--with the 70+ hacks in Patty Lyons' Knitting Bag of Tricks. Featuring dozens of brand new how-tos and the most popular tricks from author Patty Lyons' beloved advice columns, this handy guide goes far beyond your typical knitting tips. Knitters of all levels will discover both why and how various techniques work, and improve both the look of their knitting and their command of stitches. It's sure to take any knitter's skills up to the next level. With more than 30K followers on social media and name-checks by everyone from the Wall Street Journal to popular television show, Late Night with Seth Meyers, Patty is a well-known name in the knitting community.

This isn't like other 'how to knit' books with basic information about casting on and how to form stitches (although there is a handy how-to reference section at the back for when you need a refresher), this is a book about the 'why' of knitting. Not about 'why we knit' but about 'why we knit the way we do'. By digging deeper into the 'why' Patty doesn't just fix your knitting problems she helps you to truly understand why the yarn/stitches/needles/tension are acting in a certain way and how to fix any issues.

She starts by looking at the basics and explores the anatomy of a stitch, examining how this affects the look, feel and shape of the finished knitted fabrics and how different knitting techniques affect the finished outcome. Patty examines the problems caused by common mistakes that many knitters make without even noticing before diving into more complex knitting issues and how to trouble shoot them. All of Patty's techniques and tips are illustrated with detailed step-by-step artworks for absolute clarity.

And, as you'd expect from a Patty Lyons book, there is a healthy scattering of humor and irreverence throughout - you might take knitting seriously but you don't have to be serious while knitting!
