About the Book

Watching her garden grow steadily and quietly brought author Yun Jeong newfound joy. Naturally, she picked up her yarn and began knitting a series of little projects to reflect her feelings. She did her best to capture their true forms and colors, knitting unique creations to reflect the plants’ beauty, whimsy, and sustenance.

Knit Your Garden presents a series of sixteen knitting patterns you can use to create pouches and toys in the shapes of natural food that might grow in your garden or backyard. The designs use simple techniques and are intended to be easy to follow for both children and grownups—and doable in a short time—an important point if you have busy little children around. From apples to pumpkins and bell peppers to yams, you can create special bags, garlands, key chains, bag charms, or gift tags.

This collection of knitting patterns invites you to re-create the bounty of your garden and backyard using yarn.
