astors-book1 This 64 page, full – colour instructional knitting book appeals to all knitters; from “know nothing” beginners to those who want sophisticated hip designs.

A Simple-to-use Guide to Creating Hip Knits provides both written and illustrated step-by-step instructions. The book goes beyond the basics; from “good to know” information to “must know” information. There are four original knitting patterns at the end of the book. Projects include: “gain confidence, skill progressive” scarf, unisex slouch hat, Mr. Ugly Doll, and tube top + shrug = sweater pattern.

Introduction to Knitting: A Simple-to-use Guide to Creating Hip Knits is available at Urban Yarns for $19.95.


Astor has been teaching beginners how to knit for almost a decade. With the experience of teaching hundreds of beginners – as in “know nothing” to “my grandmother gave up on me” beginners – she developed a nothing is obvious philosophy. Both in class and her designs, Astor is well known for her knitting humour. Her unconventional style of teaching has made her a popular knitting teacher in Vancouver.
