Editorial Reviews

Knit it Better Homes and Garden Magazine
Geared to young, new knitters (but still perfect for knitters over 35!) who want to experience the satisfaction of making something using their new-found skill and their own sense of style.
Knitter's Review
Far more than just another 'golly, knitting is so cool and trendy' book.... Swartz's loving and honest voice is a pleasure to read.
Woman's Day Quick and Easy Knitting and Crocheting
Patterns certainly live up to their hip classification, but the classic design[s]... can be easily adapted for fickle changes in fashion.

Knitter's Magazine
These easy, quick-to-knit projects are perfect for instant-gratification knitting.— Knitter's Magazine
Library Journal
This book includes projects designed to appeal to the new Gen-X knitter and uses such currently popular materials as super-chunky wools, ribbon, and metallic yarns. Among the 18 projects are a felted tote bag, a hooded sweatshirt, a ribbed tank top, and chunky hats that should knit up in no time. Inexplicably, the "Knitting Basics" section at the end of the book does not include information on the knit and the purl stitches, so this project book will have to be used in conjunction with a basic how-to-knit instruction book. Recommended for all public libraries patronized by hip knitters. You know who you are. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

    Favorite knit book

    I have a ton of knitting books, but it is my favorite by far! I first found it in the library, and just kept renewing it for months on end. Now it is all mine! ;-)

    Excellent beginner's book

    I learned how to knit when I was very young and then I put the needles down for 30 years. I recently started to knit once again and needed a book with all the different types of patterns. Hip to Knit had everything from mittens to sweaters, with easy to read instructions. I love this book.

    A book every knitter should own

    As a beginner knitter, I found the pattern in this book very easy to understand. It is very well written and produces some beautiful pieces of knit ware. I highly recommend this to anyone that is looking for a knitting book.
