just the basics, and be comfortable following and trusting a pattern; most techniques are optional depending on which options you choose
knitting in the round
Choose each element of your day in the woods knitting adventure, starting with which path to take (that's which item you'll knit). Choose which tree to climb (each is a stitch pattern); then pick where you'll go exploring next - the river, the camp, go for a hike, or swing from a vine? All of your choices will result in different designs, along with your pick of yarn(s), size, etc. All the choices are yours to make!
The ebook/book full of knitting options will make cowls, hats, mitts, and coffee cup sleeves, all in custom sizes, any weight yarn, your choice of one or more colors. All items are worked in three sections of modular knitting, joined with short rows - no picked up stitches and little or no seaming (depending on your choices). Each section has three or four stitch patterns to choose from and many of those have multiple color options as well.
All 20 stitch patterns are both written and charted, and detail photos are included for all options, as well as details about all eight sample knits.
The pdf includes a complete ebook plus a DIY foldable, bindable, covered print book!
In addition to written book making tutorials included in the pdf (and on leethalknits.com), there are full tutorials in the Adventure Knitting video for folding and binding the booklets together, into a 64 or 80 page (charts are on their own optional pages) Adventure Knitting book!
The ebook and print book are fully illustrated with woods adventure drawings throughout.
The pdf is organized to prevent unnecessary printing of extra pages, large photos, etc - print only the pages you need, as explained on the cover page. You can print 100% of the pattern collection and information (including book making tutorials, sample photos, stitch pattern photos, and notes) on 15 printer pages (10 of those pages will fold into the 80 page book). The ebook is the first 29 pages of the pdf.
How much yarn you'll need will depend on your path which means the item you're going to knit. All items range around 1-2 skeins of yarn (standard skein sizes; a large cowl may need 3 skeins) in any weight. Some items work better in heavier weight ranges, others in lighter weights; those details are in the book, but all patterns are written for any gauge.
