New Book: Fairy Tale Knits: 20 Enchanting Characters to Make by Fiona Goble


Fairy Tale Knits: 20 Enchanting Characters to Make by Fiona Goble will be released in the US on September 4th although the book has been available in the UK since July and you can look inside the book on the UK site but not yet in the US. Isn't it fun to see the subtle variations in the covers above that supposedly make the book more appealing to their respective markets? Apparently Fiona Goble is one of the knitting grand dames in the UK but is relatively unknown in the US.

Here are images of the Table of Contents pages as well as some of the interior book pages. It looks like a very useful book of learning techniques and, of course, making fun fairy tale figures. I don't knit so I will have to admire other people's work with these.

Book description:

From the author of the sensational Knit Your Own Royal Wedding, Knitivity, and Noah's Knits, Fairy Tale Knits lets you bring to life your favorite fairy tale characters as you read along with the stories and look at the gorgeous illustrations and the photographs of each doll. Included are instructions for making 20 beloved characters from stories such as "Goldilocks and the Three Bears," "Little Red Riding Hood," "Rapunzel," "Three Little Pigs," "Beauty and the Beast," and "Hansel and Gretel."

Basic knitting stitch techniques are illustrated and explained for beginners, and experienced knitters can try their hands at embellishments and more complex patterns. There's something for everyone in this enchanting book!
