Mollie Makes How to Knit
If you fancy trying a spot of knitting (or even if you’re a dab hand with the needles yourself), then grab a copy of Mollie Makes: How to Knit. Find 20 all-new, never-before-seen knitting patterns in Mollie Makes How to Knit – they’ve never even graced the pages of Mollie Makes magazine, so Mollie devotees can be sure to find lots of new projects.
Knit planter cosies for your succulent collection or wear your knits with pride – whether you go for a classic pair of socks, or a more daring pom pom headband and loop stitch poncho. Knitting a little rusty? Jog your memory with easy knitting patterns such as the simple lace fingerless gloves or the tweed stitch bathroom rug. Knitters who know their stitches, meanwhile, can make Fair Isle hot water bottles, stockinette and rib stitch bobble hat, kawaii kittens cushions and lots more toys and gifts.
Mollie Makes How to Crochet
If hooking is your thing, or if you’re totally addicted to all things crochet, then get down to your local crafty bookist and get Mollie Makes How To Crochet, out now in paperback.
While it’s aimed at complete beginners, with step by step techniques, there are easy, fun projects for all levels.
For total newbies, there’s a beginner’s section with a handy run-through of all the basic tools you need, as well as a handy guide to choosing yarn. Once you’re ready to start, we show you the best way to hold your hook, and make your first chain!
Once you’ve got that down, it’s time to get creating! Make a gift for a loved one (or hook something for yourself – there’s no harm!) with patterns for a set of Russian dolls, a gadget cover, or hook up a bunch of crochet flowers – they won’t wither! Or you can bring your home up to date with a funky bolster cushion, chair runner or set of granny-chic retro-style potholders.
