Knitting can help with stress and anxiety, but sometimes even this relaxing craft can contribute to the worries of life. Will it fit well in the end? How will I manage a new technique? This book aims to take all those concerns out of the craft, as shawls don't have to fit in a certain way, or even end up in exactly the right shape to work. Suitable for everyone from beginners to experts, the workbook format introduces all the techniques you need before each design. It also includes a series of articles exploring the health benefits of knitting, how it can contribute to mindfulness and wellbeing.
