“This book is a must-have for anyone who wants to create something functional and beautiful from the heart without investing in expensive tools, endless supplies, or clunky machines. You only need your hands, some wool and the projects in this beautiful book. I’m not a knitter but after seeing the stunning photos of Anne’s projects and reading her supportive words, I’m definitely giving Knitting Without Needles a try!”

Drop your knitting needles and roll up your sleeves! Arm and finger knitting have taken the craft world by storm, and in Knitting Without Needles: A Stylish Introduction to Finger and Arm Knitting (Potter Craft; $19.99; on-sale 9/1/15), Anne Weil shares stylish patterns that are incredibly DIY-able, with easy-to-follow instructions and step-by-step photos that yield gorgeous and sophisticated results.
Your go-to resource for a revolutionary craft, Knitting Without Needles covers two 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. These techniques are super easy and provide near-instant gratification. Imagine knitting a chunky scarf in just 45 minutes!
Complete beginners and experienced knitters alike can make the fabulous projects in Knitting Without Needles, from lavish home decor to stylish accessories you’ll love to wear to fun projects to make with 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, tiny baby booties, and plenty of other must-have items.
