Learn all the knitty gritty—basic stitches, tools and know-how for getting started —then skate into 30 contemporary projects like iPod covers, a striped beanie, egg cozies and fruit protectors (seemingly outrageous but strangely practical), a guitar case, record bag, two-tone socks, pixie hat and more. Or experiment with tried and true designs like hoodies, scarves and hats—after all, if you have to stay warm, why not look cool?
