Why buy this book? Simple. Cooperative Press has partnered with designers to build a whole new revenue model. Every copy sold means more money in the designers’ pockets. Support design talent and you’ll always have great things to knit. We’d like to thank the generous Kickstarter patrons who helped to fund this series in its early stages: ten books, 70 designers, 100 projects = a lot of time and energy!
