Knit Yourself in
By

Rating
The history of "hen knitting" began 40 years ago with Kirsten Hofstatter's Hen Press and one simple idea: Why spend all your time knitting other people's patterns when you could make your own? Using whatever colorful odds and ends of yarn are at hand and a series of personalized pattern bands, it's easy for all knitters to express themselves with their needles. Get started with one of 20 unique projects with step-by-step instructions and dozens of sample motifs, to give yourself a feel for the fundamentals--or take the basic sweater pattern, a pillow, a pair of mittens, or a comfy hat, and mix and match the motifs you like best to create something entirely your own. Make a statement, send a message, put aside lock-step patterns, and set yourself free!
