CLASSIC ELITE QUICK KNITS 100 Fabulous Patterns for Wraps, Socks, Hats, and More by Classic Elite I was hoping this book would be about some basic patterns and it is that and more. It covers patterns for average and advanced knitters. I feel one has to know or learn quick how to use knitters charts to be able to knit items from this book. Patterns are for clothing and/or accessories for many members of your family.. What a treasure this book is: the patterns, color sequences and the items themselves. I am sitting here trying to decide which needs to be started today. For the patterns with charts, the written instructions are not included but they do point out when a new pattern starts, but you really have to know how to use charts. Head coverings, sock section, neck/shoulder adornments, and blankets/bags. Has an extensive glossary of terms used along with other information to help you select your yarn thickness. Very good resource book.

Classic Elite plus Quick Knits: What's not to love?! My Opinion: Classic Elite yarns are some of my all time favorites to work with, and I love anything that is quick to make (I get distracted easily so long involved patterns are sometimes hard for me to stick with until they are finished!), so saying this is the perfect book for me is indeed an understatement! I also crochet and there are some crochet patterns in the book so that was a bonus for me.  The description above describes the book perfectly so I'm not going to go over how many patterns there were, how many photos, etc. What I am going to say is that I loved this book! They have patterns that range from beginner to experienced and the photos are spot on! I love making lace projects and they had plenty of those in the book, and I've been wanting to try some more advanced sock patterns, which they also had plenty of. Hats, scarves and mittens are always needed in my house, and are great quick projects to make for friends and family. In summary, this is now one of my favorite quick knits books and I can't wait to delve into some of the projects! I would highly recommend it for beginning knitters all the way up to advanced knitters, with a touch of crochet thrown in to keep it interesting for people who enjoy both. This is a great book to check out when you have to make a gift quickly for someone you care about, or just to treat yourself.  I give this book a very enthusiastic 5 stars :D I received a copy of this book free of charge through NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.

I'd been wanting Classic Elite Quick Knits book for sometime after finding it at my local library. Thanks to a B&N gift card, this book is now in my library. I adapted 2 patterns (Aspen Hat and Charmed Fingerless Mitts)for Christmas and birthday gifts already and plan to knit more items soon.
