Suss Cousins, the designer/shopkeeper who kick-started today's Hollywood knitting boom with her amazing sweaters for Bill Cosby, shares her successful teaching techniques and star-quality designs. I'd like to let everyone in on this ancient but new-all-over-again craft and the pleasures of creating something out of little more than a few wisps of wool, she says. Knitting lessons using the motion-efficient Continental technique and 5 projects for progressive levels of experience: Ribbed Tube Top with Tie; Ballerina Wrap; Straight Neck Pullover; Turtle Top (made for Helen Hunt to wear with jeans at a photo session); and Single-Button Serendipitous Cardigan (made for Kate Beckinsale's ice-skating scene in the movie Serendipity).
