Announcing my first book project

Very excited to announce the release of our first book project, Cool Knitting (Australia)/Cute Knitted Toys (International).

Featuring 20 patterns for some of the internet’s favourite creatures – think: sloths, unicorns, sharks, cats – plus step-by-step photos and a beautifully illustrated guide to knitting with all the tips and tricks you will need.

Each character also has a poem – even if you don’t knit it is a compelling read! Here are some samples and below are links for the whole team who put it together – and, of course, a list of places you can buy it : )

If you get the book please share your photos with me! Use the hashtag #youcanknit: instagram (@karlacourtney, @awwcookbooks) twitter (@karlacourtney) and Facebook (

You can knit!
