Additional Resources

At the back of the book, there is a beautifully illustrated technique section. This section walks you through choosing your tools and materials, stitch definitions and tutorials, and tips for finishing your work. After this section, you will find a list of the actual yarns used in all the patterns. The projects do list the weight, amount, and colors used, but with this list you can recreate the projects in the exact same yarns if you like!
