    Little Gifts to Knit 30 Quick and Colorful Patterns by Jean Moss

    Little Gifts to Knit 30 Quick and Colorful Patterns by Jean Moss
    This colorful illustrated book about quick gifts you can make has so many adorable ideas.
    The first section is baby and not only does it have the tiny caps but also an illusion afghan. The directions are charted and row by row instructions.
    Next section is Hers and the pieces are so elegant, lacy, and romantic. The berets would be my favorite
    Next section is for Him and my favorite there would be the beannie cap-love doing cable work.
    Home section favorite for me would be Welcome door hanging=so different!
    Book includes special stitches used, the technique of using them; Yarn Information-where to obtain the yarn used in the samples; and a section on selecting the right buttons and trimmings.
    Knitting abbreviations is next, needle and hook sizing, and a project index with pictures and page numbers for quick reference.
    Index and bio about the author are also included.
    What I liked about this book is a lot of the quick projects can also be used in the charity work I do locally and some look challenging while others with the pattern look very easy.
    The very high quality photographs will speak volumes to you!
    I received this book from Net Galley via The Taunton Press, Inc. in exchange for my honest review.
