Book Review: 60 More Quick Knits

Hope you all enjoyed the book review from last week. And, thanks again for all the comments. I love reading them! I think I am going to try to do book reviews on Mondays until I get through the stack of review copies. So, onto this week's book review:

This week I am taking a look at 60 More Quick Knits. The book features 20 hats, 20 scarves and 20 mitten patterns.

I have to say, I found the mitten patterns to be especially charming. Here is a shot of my favorite one, the Nordic mittens:


And, I thought many of the hats were very clever too. Here is the Bridcage Beanie:

All the patterns in the book are written for Cascade 220 sport. A nice affordable yarn if you ask me. I think what I like the most is since you know that all the patterns are written for sport weight, you could easily subsitiute yarn, if you wanted to. 

I think this is a great book and there are tons of things I would knit in it. It retails for $17.95 and I have seen it on Amazon for as low as $11.27!

This is the exact kind of book I would keep for myself, except I don't think I will get around to knitting anything in it for awhile. So, how about another giveaway! Just leave a comment here (and make sure leave a Rav id or something so I can find you should you win) and I will draw a winner on Friday, 2/3 around 5pm central time. Good luck!

Note: I received this book as a review copy. For more information, please see my full disclosure policy here.

  6. I'd love to win this book as I especially like that the patterns are in sport weight yarn. I haven't used the 220 sport yet so winning would give me a great opportunity to try it!

    I am trying to build a small collection of books with go to projects so I don't have to get in line with my kids to find patterns on line. This would be perfect.

    That birdcage hat is so cute! Cascade makes such great yarns, but I haven't had a chance to use the sport yet. This might be my excuse! I'm yarnella on Rav.

    It's so nice to see great design in smaller weight. Most of us don't need mittens in stranded super heavy yarn, but sport is just lovely. My rav name is beccab
