I like to tell new knitters to always pick a project that will force them to learn a new skill. It is all too easy to get nervous when you see a beautiful pattern that might be a little bit of out of your skill range. Our knitting SHOULD challenge us, and thanks to the Internet it is usually pretty easy to get some personal, private tutoring. This week's free pattern requires a zipper, as does Wien, a pattern from the brand new booklet #304 Berroco Sox: Playground Stripes.Watch our video on zipper installation. If you'd rather knit Krems, you might want to watch Norah's excellent video on intarsia.
Carry baby necessities in style. Zippers add easy access to three roomy compartments, while color contrasting trim makes this bag fun to tote.
