Once you’ve got­ten over any fear you had of knit­ting sweaters, it’s time to move on to more com­plex projects, which is where Ur­ban Knit Col­lec­tion comes in. Sub­ti­tled 18 City-In­spired Knit­ting Pat­terns for the Mod­ern Wardrobe, the col­lec­tion in­cludes sweaters, wraps and ac­ces­sories for men and women, many of which use com­plex stitch pat­tern­ing. These are so­phis­ti­cated de­signs that in­cor­po­rate ca­bles, lace, col­or­work and stitch pat­tern­ing. Each pat­tern head­ing in­cludes the knit­ting knowl­edge needed for the de­sign, so if you have the req­ui­site skill or are will­ing to learn it, you can knit the project. In other words, just fol­low the step-by-step in­struc­tions, and you’ll be sur­prised at how easy it can be to knit a com­pli­cated-look­ing de­sign.

Move be­yond the ba­sics with this pat­tern col­lec­tion and look at home in the city or the coun­try.
