Seasoned knitters know: the sassiest garments are often the easiest to stitch -as long as you understand why and what you're doing. In KNITTER'S LIB, handmade knit designer Lena Maikon applies her learn-as-you-go approach to 20 original designs that provide instant gratification for the most fashionable (and impatient) up-and-coming knitter. Lena's stylish patterns for bandanas, hats, scarves, bikinis, shawls, sweaters, tanks, bags, skirts, logs, pants, capes, and muffs combine both knit and crochet stitches, inspiring yarn buffs to break out their needles all year round. KNITTER'S LIB is about knitting with open eyes -it's not about following the pack or even following the pattern. Lena eliminates the mystery of every project's curve and seam, teaching knitters and crocheters of all abilities how to personalize patterns and create stylish, from-scratch designs with confidence and success.

From the cover I thought there would be some great projects in the book. I made nothing from the book.

BUT the written explainations of how to knit and crochet are excellent. If you are struggling at all read over these instructions. They might really help because they are explained different and it might click for you.
