Classic Designs for the Modern Knitter

Knitbot Essentials - what's inside, anyway?

This morning I was so excited that Knitbot Essentials was available, all I could do was announce that it was here! Now for more details - what's inside, anyway?

Nine Knitbot patterns - these are all previously released patterns together for the first time as a collection.  Knitbot Essentials is now on Ravelry, and I've updated all the pattern pages to include the appropriate Quince & Co. yarn requirements.

The pattern specs for all 9 designs are also found here on the Quince & Co. website.
