We can't get enough of this design by Arounna Khounnoraj — it's cute, trendy and easy to knock out in a weekend. Plus, it's a great way to use all those yarn scraps you have lying around. Let's get punching!

The primrose stitch, a variation on the shell stitch, is perfect for beginner crocheters who want to get into intermediate-stitch territory, but it's also a go-to for seasoned stitchers who want to bring some gorgeous texture to their projects.

Weave
To make this gorgeous woven sunset, you don't need any fancy tools — just a wooden picture frame and a fork from your kitchen (really!). Plus you only need to know two stitches, and we'll teach you both of 'em.

You love to knit and crochet and give the things you make as gifts. At this point, everyone in your life has one of your blankets, sweaters, or hats. Your family and friends. Your UPS guy. Your neighbor. Your neighbor's baby. Your other neighbor's baby.

Most sock knitters have strong feelings about how they get the job done. If you're one of them, you're probably decisive about cuff-down vs. toe-up, and you've figured out a way to perfectly graft those toes. We're not about to mess with all that! But...sometimes trying a new technique, like the magic loop method, can revolutionize the way you knit socks. Just sayin'.

Spin
When you're first learning how to spin, you may find that things can — and, I'm sorry to say, probably will — go wrong at some point. Your yarn won't wind on, or it'll wind on too tightly. Or you may find yourself wondering helplessly, where did the end go?!

Thank goodness for shawls: They're practical (wrap 'em like a scarf in winter or wear as a lightweight layer in summer), don't require any fitting, and come in so many shapes and sizes.

Spin
We've got a thing for batts — whether you buy one ready to go, or card your own, there's no limit to the rich colors and textures you can create. It's not surprising that sometimes, a batt might just seem too beautiful to use (it's okay to admire them for awhile!). But, once you're ready to get spinning, here's what you need to know.

A spinning wheel is a big investment, and you want to keep that spinning wheel running like a well oiled machine.

The circular knitting needle may seem like a specialty tool, but it could actually be the most useful needle in your knitting bag.
