Fast-knitting and small-budget projects are always hotwhether youre a first-time knitter or an avid crafter. This special issue brings you truly simple knits that dont require much yarn and are super-cute to boot. Planning this issue, we had the new(ish) knitter in mindsomeone whos recently learned to knit from a teacher or friend, and whos itching just to make something. The magazine covers all the basics (to reinforce those newfound skills), but the patterns can stand on their own for knitters of all skill levels. This issue retains Knitscene’s usual sense of style and fun, and I think regular readers will find lots to love here. Enjoy!
