We are very excited to bring you A Year of Techniques, the first book from Arnall-Culliford Knitwear!

Part primer, part pattern collection, A Year of Techniques brings you 12 tutorials to level up your knitting skills, each coupled with a beautiful pattern from a team of world-class designers. Aimed at advanced beginner knitters and upwards, A Year of Techniques makes all these techniques clear and achievable.

The techniques covered include: helical stripes, intarsia, pinhole cast on, knitted-on edging, turning a heel, afterthought heels and thumbs, garter stitch grafting, Judy’s magic cast on (both for starting closed tubes, and as a provisional cast on), mastering dominance in Fair Isle knitting, reading cables from charts, short rows, and steeks.
