Library Journal Review

The latest entry in the "60 Quick Knits" series focuses on beginner-friendly projects knit in budget-friendly yarn. While the requisite hats and scarves are included, the designers branch out into shawls and wraps, socks, cowls, mittens, and simple sweaters, giving newer knitters some variety to choose from. Later projects incorporate simple intarsia and cable knitting to challenge beginners. The styles range from classic and simple (rectangular scarf, baby booties) to surprisingly contemporary (lots of stripes on a variety of accessories, asymmetrical shawls). While all of the projects are appropriate for beginning knitters, the patterns appear in order of difficulty, with tips and techniques included in the instructions. VERDICT Novice knitters will appreciate the variety of projects, as well as the helpful tutorials. © Copyright 2018. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
