Knit knockout items with sassy, roller derby-inspired patterns
With its cheeky players, fast-paced jams, heart-stopping pileups, and rowdy, raucous atmosphere, roller derby is hot! This book is jam-packed with thirty hip knitting patterns designed by the Naptown Roller Girls of Indianapolis, Indiana, who are aggressive skaters and avid knitters. On skates, they're hell on wheels; in their spare time, they've discovered that knitting is a relaxing, creative outlet. Audacious and unconventional, Knockdown Knits features:
Fun, devil-may-wear patterns for everything from fishnets to an I Love Derby sweater to a hangover kit
Some patterns created out of sore necessity, such as ice pack covers, slings, and armpit cushions for crutches
Step-by-step instructions and easy-to-follow, detailed patterns
100 photos and 40 color drawings showing steps and techniques
Photos of each design modeled by members of the Naptown Roller Girls
If you've been looking for something different to sink your needles into, you'll love these edgy designs that reflect the fun, brash roller derby bravado and your free spirit.
