Knitting & Crochet

Hand knitting and its sister craft of crochet have always been popular pastimes. Engaging, creative and rewarding in equal measure, they also offer the benefits of saving the pennies and adding a personal touch to gifts and garments. With simple instructions and step-by-step illustrations, this practical handbook will equip you with all the know-how you need to create your own clothes, toys and decorations with little more than a ball of yarn and a pair of knitting needles.
