I have been asked to recommend a book for beginner knitters who want to learn new skills but in a practical way… I can do that! And that is Mug Hugs (Cozy) by Alison Howard.
Mug Hugs are knitted sleeves for mugs. Quick to make in a single peice, These sleeves can be made in what ever coloured wool you have laying around or will suit the recipient and make a cheap but eye-catching gift.
In this book, Alison has put together a wide range of patterns, starting with Garter Stitch (yes – you can do just do these gifts if all you can do is knit!!!) through to argyll and cable techinques. Best of all – everything you need to do is demostrated – so its perfect for beginners or those wanting a last minute gift.
If you want a fun and different present idea book – then go for this one.
Thanks for Reading
