Intrigued by the idea of helical knitting? Have you knitted 1x1 helical stripes, but would like to know more about working more complex stripes? Would you like to know more about using helical stitch patterns? Or are you just keen to try something new in your knitting? Then this is the ebook for you!
Something New to Learn About Helical Knitting will be delivered as an ebook in four fortnightly chapters, with the first being released on Tuesday 9th October. The four chapters are as follows:
Basic helical stripes
Helical stitch patterns
Working helically (adding shaping and other elements to helical projects)
Working multi-round helical patterns
As well as the photo tutorials in the ebook, we will be releasing some video tutorials to supplement the basic helical techniques. Each chapter is also accompanied by a pattern or two that will allow you to practise the skills introduced in the tutorials. I’ve purposefully kept the first few patterns quite simple to allow you to hone your helical knitting before starting to add other elements. As the ebook progresses the designs become more complex, although I would stress that the techniques are in that magic zone of easy to carry out, but also very, very clever. If you can knit in the round, then all of these designs should be accessible to you. There are seven patterns in total, and the ebook will also come with a few added bonuses.
All of the patterns use our new Something to Knit With Aran yarn (the first pattern uses one skein each of two colours, just in case you want to get your supplies ready!), and the ebook comes with a download code that gives you 10% off all purchases in our online shop for the duration of the ebook release period (offer ends 27th November 2018, 23:59 UK time. The code is not valid in conjunction with any other offer). The code is valid on purchases of books, yarn, needles, notions and treats, may be used more than once by each customer, and will be found in the Welcome Pack PDF for the ebook.

P.S. I never thought I would knit a project that used 14 balls of yarn simultaneously, but the cover image is just one result of my explorations over the last few months, and is probably my favourite design in the collection. I am so excited to share my helical adventures with you!
