By Anna Maltz
Love penguins? Love knitting?
This is the book for you!
There are 11 creative projects to cast on, from hats to cardigans to a cuddly toy. Anna Maltz has come up with playful, clever and contemporary designs, all inspired by penguins: their striking plumage, caring nature and (of course) the way they can withstand the cold.
Any average knitter with an adventurous spirit can give these projects a go. The step-by-step patterns are interspersed with stories, photography and illustrations from Anna’s creative community.
PENGUIN – A Knit Collection is so much more than a practical guide, it’s a pleasure to dive into. Banish boredom, cast on and join a community of knitters who are making the world more interesting with every stitch.
