Description

Dive into the Olympics with Knitlympics! This fantastic new book lets you knit all your favourite sporting heroes and heroines, past and present. Whether you're a fan of athletics, swimming or gymnastics there is a project for you. Includes patterns for 20 Olympic icons, from ancient Greece to London 2012. You don't have to be athletic to knit your own lighting-fast Usain Bolt, mustachioed Mark Spitz or sparrow-like Olga Korbut. Additional patterns for basic sports kit mean that you can knit any athlete you like, ensuring that no one is left out. You can even join in on the opening of the games by knitting your own Olympic torch and go for the gold by knitting Olympic medals, a podium and of course a coveted ticket. A techniques section for novice knitters means that everyone can take part. With a link to an exclusive free Steve Redgrave pattern download!show more
