Dive into the Olympics with Knitlympics! This fantastic new book lets you knit all your favourite sporting heroes and heroines, past and present. Whether you’re a fan of athletics, swimming or gymnastics there is a project for you.
Includes patterns for 20 Olympic icons, from ancient Greece to London 2012. You don’t have to be athletic to knit your own lighting-fast Usain Bolt, mustachioed Mark Spitz or sparrow-like Olga Korbut.
Additional patterns for basic sports kit mean that you can knit any athlete you like, ensuring that no one is left out. You can even join in on the opening of the games by knitting your own Olympic torch and go for the gold by knitting Olympic medals, a podium and of course a coveted ticket.
To celebrate the publication of this great book, we’re delighted to offer all our readers a free pattern to download. It’s exclusive to our website and is a pattern to knit G.B.’s greatest ever Olympian, Sir Steve Redgrave!
