Cozy Fiber Crafts

By Kat La Mantia | October 28 2022 | AdultsGeneralAllBlog

Cold weather means layers, and layers means blankets, sweaters, scarves, socks, and hats. In other words, it’s the perfect time to get into fiber crafts! Whether you want to knit your first scarf, crochet a pair of mittens, embroider a favorite jacket, or construct a grand quilt, we have the books you need to conquer any project. From beginners to skilled makers, there’s something fun for everyone on this list.

Tired of the usual designs? Dip into something different with adorable animal amigurumi, subversive cross stitch patterns, or felted cat hair hats (for cats, of course).

Check out some highlighted books below, and explore even more on this title list.
