All these projects are easy to make and will inject style and color into your interiors. There are three colour schemes to choose from—blues and greens in Cool Collection; reds, oranges, and yellows in Hot Ideas; and whites, creams, and grays in Pale Palette—so there is something for all tastes. You can start with smaller projects, such as the bolster pillow cover, flower vase cozy, or striped clock cover, and then move onto something a little larger, such as the rope knit basket, chunky knit rug, or covered ottoman. With a comprehensive techniques section, you'll discover how to use giant knitting needles, and how to measure up furniture for a knitted cover, as well as all the basics of knitting, so even beginners can try their hand at these fabulous ideas.
