Build Your Knitting Skills with Building Blocks . . . and the Yarn is on Sale!

When we found out that Michelle Hunter was publishing a new book, we had to get the details!  As a veteran of two very popular Knit-Alongs sponsored by Skacel, Michelle has turned her attention to helping the beginning knitter with her new book "Building Blocks." This book is for the knitter who wants to "Build" skills one "Block" at a time!

"Building Blocks" is a series of 12 fun patterns that will increase your knitting skills starting with simple knit and purl stitches. Your confidence will grow as you progress through several major knitting principles. Each block pattern focuses on new stitches and techniques in a sequential fashion that "builds" upon the previously learned skill. Knitting techniques for each block is supported with video instruction by Michelle on her website  This book has been getting great reviews on Ravelry!

Bonus: Pick from over 50 colors of HiKoo's SimpliWorsted yarn! The yarn is a soft, machine washable worsted weight yarn (55% Superwash Wool / 28% Acrylic / 17% Nylon).  Here's the REAL bonus: the yarn is 20% OFF, any quantity! 
  • For the solid version you will need 10 skeins, one color
  • For a two-color version you will need 5 skeins of 2 colors
  • For a multi-color set of the squares you will need 12 skeins, each one a different color
At the end of the book you will have 12 blocks ... piece them together to make a great afghan, baby blanket, pillows, whatever you decide!
