24 Practical, Beautiful Designs to Wear Every Day!

Knitters love stitching pieces that become mainstays: garments and accessories to wear year after year. They are steadfast companions in your daily adventures: walking the dog, working outdoors, or simply tucking in for a cozy night at home.

Rugged Knits is a collection of 21 functional, lovely, and interesting knitting patterns for men and women. Side-by-side with hearty wool sweaters and sock patterns are more unexpectedly delicate-looking pieces, such as a warm, resilient shawl with lace trim and a cozy cowl with gentle drape. Those who love cables will rejoice in the gorgeously-shaped turtleneck and bright, eye-catching mitts. Fans of colorwork will enjoy both stranded knitting and intarsia pieces, while those who want to keep it simple will delight in textured, knit-and-purl designs.

Andrea Rangel's compelling, classic pieces in Rugged Knits will remain perennial favorites; long after the knitting is done, the knitter will still be wearing each one.

I love the variety of and patterns in this book. All patterns were easy to read and lets you try a few different techniques.

I'm not sure what makes this rugged and practical. There are a variety of different garments in this book. They have nice photographs, and easy to read directions. The patterns don't seem too difficult. There is no preamble, but the book just dives right into the patterns. There is a brief glossary in the back that covers the various abbreviations and techniques. This is a decent book if you want to see a variety of knitted garments for both men and women. Could be handy for gift inspiration.
