Knitting from the Center Out teaches knitters the revolutionary old technique of centre out knitting (meaning starting a project with just a few stitches and knitting outward from the centre). It includes tutorials for the minimal skills required, such as special cast ons, increases and decreases and working with double pointed needles, and more than 25 projects. The projects range from a cord necklace, a lei like ruffled scarf and a stuffed octopus to baby blankets, lace shawls, sweaters, hats (even a Sorting Hat a la Harry Potter), socks and mittens. Throughout the book are fascinating, easy to understand explanations of the maths underlying the stitches and the architecture of the flat and dimensional shapes that can be formed using this method. A carefully curated selection of projects, clear instructions and beautiful photography and illustrations assure that knitters of all levels and inclinations, whether they are technique junkies or just like to follow the directions and make pretty things will want to have this book.
