KNITLYMPICS By Carol Meldrum
Knit Your Favourite Sports Star with this book full of knitting patterns, KNITLYMPICS by Carol Meldrum.
With patterns for tickets, a podium, torch and medals, with this book you can knit your favourite sporting idols and hold your own Knitlympic Games! Includes 20 Olympic icons, from ancient Greece to London 2012, including legends such as Jesse Owens, Sebastian Coe, Cathy Freeman and Usain Bolt. Patterns for basic sports kit mean that you can knit any athlete you like, past or present! With a technique section for novice knitters. Also includes a link for Steve Redgrave pattern download.
The book has been designed to be accessible to both beginner and experienced knitters. To help bring the characters and the Olympic spirit to life, each knitted athlete has a full set of instructions and all the knit, embroidery and craft techniques used to create those all-important details have been included at the back of the book.
It doesn’t stop there, using the Basic Male and Basic Female doll patterns along with the appropriate basic clothing for the discipline in a different colour, you have everything you need to make your very own sporting hero. There are also a few little extras for you to wear to help you celebrate and cheer on the athletes: a winner’s wreath, a pair of wrist bands and the all-important and highly sought-after entrance tickets.
Get set, go – and let the Knitlympic Games begin!
