Knitting In No Time : 50 Easy-Knit Bags, Shawls, Jackets and More for Fast, Fun Style Paperback

2.5 out of 5 (2 ratings)


Created by knitwear designer Melody Griffiths, the projects include both traditional and new knitted garments, from bright skinny scarves to fingerless mittens and deliciously enveloping shrugs, shawls and ponchos, as well as more substantial outerwear and a range of matching accessories.

Projects can be extremely fast to knit; for instance, choose a triple-twist wool and even a beginner can create a roomy knitted tote in just half a day, while a soft pull-on hat can be made in three hours.

Extra-large knitting needles and super-thick yarns produce great results in no time, and there are also tips on knitting in the round and other techniques that will speed up the knitting process.

Each project comes complete with an estimated making time and its own series of tips, including how best to handle the yarn, the right type of cast-on and speed-knitting hints.

This is a fun book. I've only just got it, so I've not had time to try any of the patterns yet.... But I love the choice of yarns.

Review by

A knitting book that doesn't bother giving any dimensions is not very useful. Many of the patterns would be interesting if there were a diagram of the finished piece(s). Even with the same yarn, people don't knit to exactly the same gauge. (Not to mention that I have no intention at all of counting a few hundred rows.) I would reserve to myself the right to buy a similar yarn and not the exact one she uses even if I could get the brands she mentions. As it is, I won't waste my time with it.
