|| Knitted and crocheted accessories are totally on trend, and bags are particularly popular. They are relatively quick to make and knitters of all abilities can try new techniques that don't take too long to complete. Sian Brown has created 22 beautiful designs in a range of sizes and styles, suitable for beginners as well as more experienced knitters. They include colorwork, lace, cables and texture stitches, and are knitted using a variety of different yarns. All the bags are beautifully finished with coordinating fabric linings, pockets, and wadding to help them keep their shape, and are embellished with knitted flowers, buttons, bows and pompoms. There is a range of designs to choose from, including simple bags, totes, summer bags and evening bags, and the extensive techniques section at the back of the book provides step-by-step guidance on colorwork; embellishments such as surface embroidery, beads, knitted flowers and pompoms; making up and lining your bag; how to attach zips, buttons and other fastenings; and plaited cords and handles. Sian's delightfully fresh and appealing designs and attention to detail make this an attractive book for all knitters.
