If your plan this year is to become a more confident knitter, take a look at ‘A Year Of Techniques’ – a new project from knitting experts Jen and Jim Arnall-Culliford. It's designed to teach knitters new skills, and you'll receive 12 projects from world-class designers, each focusing on a different technique. The designs will be accompanied by detailed photo and video tutorials to help you master each skill, and there's also a knitalong each month in the Ravelry group.
The first six months of patterns will be sent digitally, starting with the Hyacinthus armwarmers designed by Jen, which was released on 1st March. This pattern covers the helical stripe method, so you can knit jogless stripes. The full print book, containing all 12 patterns, will be sent to you in September.
Designers contributing patterns to the project include Romi Hill, Sarah Hatton, Mary Jane Mucklestone, Bristol Ivy, Woolly Wormhead and Rachel Coopey – so we’re sure to see some stunning patterns! You can see the full list of designers here.
You can buy a print + ebook copy of A Year of Techniques for £19.99 plus shipping, or the ebook only version for just £19.99. Both products can be found in the shop on the Year of Techniques page.
And you can find more of Jen's knitting masterclass guides in our How To Knit section.
