Book Description

Knitted and crocheted accessories are totally on trend, and bags are particularly popular. They are relatively quick to make and knitters of all abilities can try new techniques that don’t take too long to complete.  

Sian has created 22 designs in a range of sizes and styles, suitable for beginners as well as more experienced knitters. They include colourwork, lace, cables and texture stitches, and are knitted using a variety of different yarns. All the bags are beautifully finished with coordinating fabric linings, pockets, and wadding to help them keep their shape, and are embellished with knitted flowers, buttons, bows and pompoms.

There is a range of designs to choose from, including simple bags, totes, summer bags and evening bags, and the extensive techniques section at the back of the book provides step-by-step guidance on colourwork; embellishments such as surface embroidery, beads, knitted flowers and pompoms; making up and lining your bag; how to attach zips, buttons and other fastenings; and plaited cords and handles.

Sian’s delightfully fresh and appealing designs and attention to detail make this an attractive book for all knitters.

A fantastic book that delivers all it promises on the cover! Sian Brown has invluded patterns for bags for allseasons and occasions, and caters for all skill levels. Each pattern is clearly written, has several life size photos for reference, and has loads of details on finishing and fastening details for a complete, professional finished product. Each pattern uses generic yarn for ease of purchase and cost, but the book slso has detsils of branded yarns shoukd you want them. All techniques are exained in detail, and will extend the skills of all levels of knitter! A wonderful book that will have you scrabbling for yarn and needles as soon as you open it - cant wait for tbe crochet companion.
