This book is the avid knitter’s dream. What better way to mark the weeks
that have passed, and those that lie ahead, than with 52 original hand-knit
projects, specially chosen for each season of the year? Unique garments and
accessories are yours to be had—or given away—each of them charming,
useful, and simple enough to make in one week or less. The result is a tangible
material calendar that allows you to measure your year’s knitting successes
in a glance.
World-renowned knitwear designer Debbie Bliss provides a delightful assortment
of projects that range in scale from the sizeable to the small: a cozy, chunky
scarf takes a few balls of yarn, while more modest napkin rings can be made
using remnants. But Debbie doesn’t just have your time and budget in mind—you’re
also bound to find something to suit the season and your mood, including spring
cushions, flower pot covers, and a baby cardigan; summer sachets and bags; fall
gloves and socks; and winter scarves and holiday ornaments.
With her trademark good taste and flair for providing step-by-step instructions
any knitter—beginner or experienced—can follow, Debbie Bliss has
given us yet another fantastic source for attractive, practical hand-knits that
are a joy to create and a pleasure to wear and use. And, the knowledge that
next week holds the promise of a whole new project (a.k.a. a “new knitting
adventure”) can certainly make your “knitter’s year”
a very good year indeed.
DEBBIE BLISS is one of the foremost hand-knit designers in
the US, UK, and increasingly in Europe and Asia. She is the author of many knitting
books and has her own magazine—Debbie Bliss Knitting Magazine—which

to design garments and accessories with universal appeal. The Knitter’s
Year is the 21st book by Debbie Bliss to be published by Trafalgar Square
Books. Other titles include Debbie Bliss Tips for Knitters, Essential Knits
for Kids, Essential Baby, Simply Baby, and Booties, Blankets, and Bears.
