Knitstrips : the world's first comic-strip knitting book / Alice Ormsbee Beltran, Karen Kim Mar ; illustrations by Laura Irrgang and Michele Phillips.

Beltran, Alice Ormsbee, (author.). Mar, Karen Kim, (author.). Irrgang, Laura, (illustrator.). Phillips, Michele (Artist), (illustrator.).


Knitstrips presents 22 original patterns, boundless humor, and seriously appealing knitting instruction. Inspired, original, and laugh-out-loud funny, knitstrips are patterns and knitting instruction mixed with advice and humorous commentary--and presented in illustrated comic book panels. Launched in 2016 on the mega-popular knitting site Modern Daily Knitting, the strips gained instant popularity and have attracted thousands of avid fans. The book includes 22 brand-new patterns and is designed to mimic a bound collection of comic books in a series: each issue with its own cover and wry theme--from yarn stashes to binge knitting--that is close to the heart of knitters. Issues offer four to six knitting patterns each, plus designer highlights and a variety of stories and technical discussions. The result is a fresh, lively knitting adventure that is like nothing the fiber world has seen before.
