The Basics pattern book contains instructions for 3 beginner knitting projects and each pattern is written for 3 different yarn weights (DK, Worsted or Bulky). It also includes links to video tutorials for all the basic techniques used (especially helpful if you’re a true-blue beginner).

This pattern book could also be useful if you are teaching someone to knit.

The Canaan cowl is designed to be long with the option to wrap around you neck twice for a closer fit.

This pattern features three different gauge options, so you can use DK, worsted or bulky weight yarn.
