Knit Block of the Month

Build your knitting skills one square at a time!

This is a great series for the newest knitters who want to learn skills in a steady pace throughout the year.

Building Blocks” is a series of 12 fun patterns that will build your knitting skills. Starting with simple knit and purl stitches, your confidence will grow as you progress through several major knitting principles. Each block focuses on new stitches and techniques in a sequential fashion that “builds” upon the previously learned skill.

At the end of the series, the knitter is rewarded with an abundance of knitting know-how and 12 beautiful squares to assemble into a sampler afghan, baby blanket, pillows or anything limited only by your imagination!

As an added bonus, all the techniques featured in this book are supported with FREE online video instruction available at
