The Minimalist Knitter Handbook

Several months ago, surrounded by yarn I didn’t knit with and needles I never used, I took a stand, declaring myself a minimalist knitter.

I did not use or need much of what I had accumulated in the many years of my knitting hobby – in fact, I found the greatest joy from the simplest of tools, the most basic of yarn, and the same patterns used repeatedly to make items for charity and others.

In the months that followed, I pared down my yarn stash, got rid of all but the most essential of knitting needles, and even knocked out all of my WIPs! Through it all I’ve learned a lot, and am excited to share these lessons with you!

I believe that any knitter can join my ranks: knit through their stashes, pare down their notions and supplies, and become minimalist knitters. While not an easy journey, the process is well worth the final product – and isn’t that what we all love most about knitting, after all?!

The Minimalist Knitter’s Handbook: Knitting More With Less is a full 40+ page e-book, packed with information every knitter needs to pare down their stash and start knitting in a new way – creating more finished knits with less surrounding them!

Inside you’ll find:
  • 10+ ideas for paring down your knitting stash

  • Suggestions for living as a minimalist knitter

  • Four patterns included, each of which are perfect for charity donation knitting, stocking up your hand-knit presents drawer, and busting through your yarn stash!

  • Three appendixes – one full of charity links, one full of knitting terms, and one full of great knitting links I love!

Who Should Read This Book:
  • Anyone looking to pare down their yarn stash, but unsure of where to begin.

  • Knitters stuck in a rut with their knitting, and looking for some inspiration.

  • Those looking for a “new way” to approach their knitting.

Finally: The Minimalist Knitter’s Handbook isn’t a quick-fix to the global knitting problem of too much stashed yarn. And yes, I truly believe this is a serious problem – one that speaks to the over-consumption lifestyle so many of us in the Developed World have grown accustomed to.

Achieving a Minimalist Knitter’s lifestyle will take work and dedication. You will spend months knitting from your stash and have to fight off “new yarn temptation” repeatedly. If you are willing to apply the strategies laid out in the e-book however, you will have Minimalist Knitter success!
