There’s an unusual, worksheet-based designing method at the heart of the Ethnic Knitting series (Ethnic Knitting Discovery and Ethnic Knitting Exploration). If youd like to try it out before committing to a book, we have some sample projects available as free downloads. They dont contain all the background information thats in the books but they do work as standalone resources.
In addition, we have copies of the other project worksheets available for sale as PDF downloads on Ravelry. You dont have to be a Ravelry member to purchase them. This could let you try out a single project, or give you a re-printable set of worksheets that saves a trip to the copy shop.
We often have damaged copies of our books for sale at half price plus shipping. Check the ordering page. If you dont see the book you want there and youd be happy with a damaged, readable copy, get in touch. We might have something we havent had time to post.
