Overview

Today’s knitters are chic, smart—and busy. Although they love to knit and enjoy making gifts for family and friends, they’re constantly faced with the challenge of finding enough time to actually finish what they’ve started. Last-Minute Knitted Gifts solves this problem. JOELLE HOVERSON, owner of Purl, a favorite knitting supply store in downtown Manhattan, has designed more than thirty easyto-follow patterns, most of which can be made in less than ten hours—some in as little as two!

Known for her keen sense of color, Hoverson, a fine artist and professional stylist, has put together a fun, fresh collection that includes classics like baby booties and bonnets, sweaters, and scarves, plus imaginative options like a cashmere tea cozy, a felted yoga mat bag, floor cushions, and a poncho—surely something for everyone on the gift list. And to make each present extra-special, Hoverson offers simple tips on working with color and how to incorporate knitting—and yarn embellishments like ribbons, cords, and tassels—into the gift wrap.

Shown in elegant photographs by world-class photographer ANNA WILLIAMS, the projects in Last-Minute Knitted Gifts are sure to appeal to knitters of all levels of experience as well as the people for whom they want to show their love, affection, or appreciation—for there are few more touching ways to show someone you care than to knit a gift for them by hand!

I picked up this book to make some scarves for the holidays, but liked it so much I want to try to make some of the other things. Even though I am a beginner, I was able to use the book and get my projects done.

I love how this book is organized by the amount of time it will take to knit each gift. There is a large variety of patterns so there is something for everyone on your gift list. While I haven't had a chance to knit anything from this book yet, several are on my list.
