Start with an easy dishcloth to practice the knit stitch, move on to a scarf or cowl to learn about changing colors, continue with a hat, to learn the purl stitch and finish up with a pair of mittens or socks. Each of these patterns are designed to help you progress through new terms and skills easily – plus check out our helpful Learn to Knit videos for additional help!

But best of all, these are patterns that you can turn to again and again. Every knitter I know has a favorite basic pattern they knit constantly – mine happens to be my Go Your Own Way Socks pattern, which is included in this collection.


All 5 patterns are great for quick gifts or for showing off that special yarn you bought for yourself (I can’t tell you how many pairs of GYOW socks I have in Hawthorne!).  Get this collection as an eBook or beautiful physical book (on sale for 40% off!), grab your needles and yarn and get started today!
