Drop your knitting needles and roll up your sleeves. the only thing you’ll be needing are your hands, some fluffy wool and the projects in Anne Weil’s beautiful and very crafty new book, Knitting Without Needles: A Stylish Introduction to Finger and Arm Knitting from Potter Craft. in the book Anne shares stylish patterns that are incredibly simple, but yield gorgeous DIY results and covers two new popular techniques: Finger knitting, a form of weaving loops of yarn through one another on your hand to create long chains of knit fabric; and arm knitting, which uses your forearms to loop strands of yarn into chunky knits. so it sounds like you can stay warm and cozy while you’re knitting!

Anne’s techniques are super easy and provide near-instant gratification. Imagine knitting a chunky scarf in just 45 minutes! beginners and experienced knitters alike can make the fabulous projects in Knitting Without Needles, from lavish home decor like this gorgeous pouf anne made for me from Cascade Magnum yarn donated by purl soho for her the great American pouf book tour. the book also includes techniques to create stylish fashion accessories like scarves, as well as fun projects to make with your kids. All you need is yarn and your own two hands (literally) to create a cozy cabled blanket, a pom-pom trimmed hat, a pouf for your living room, and plenty of other adorable items. you can find kits for the poufs and signed copies of Knitting Without Needles in anne’s shop.
