About the Book

Finally, a knitting book featuring fantastic projects that don’t require you to study a pattern for hours–a sure recipe for blissful, carefree knitting. A book of great potential gifts and keepsakes, this collection of 30 dynamic projects–from blankets to simple sweaters to wraps–is designed so you can easily pick up your needles during moments of free time, whether binge-watching a show, waiting for your plane to board, or having a “wine and knitting” night with friends. For key moments–such as joining an arm to a sweater or casting on additional rows–patterns are coded with “concentration zones” and “cruise control” segments for when you can go into a mindful state and let the knitting take a back seat. Thin enough to slip in your bag, with charming four-color photography throughout, Drop-Dead Easy Knits is the answer to all your laid-back knitting needs.


If you love to knit, than Drop Dead Easy Knits is one that you should definitely add to your collection. Right away, that gorgeous cover just invites you in and the three gals that represent the different projects and stories throughout the book, make you feel like part of the gang. Each project is easy to follow based on a level of difficulty so there is something for everyone. When you look at these projects, I know you probably might think it's impossible to make. When they break down everything, it's so easy to follow not just by it steps and diagrams but gives you great tips. Typical books always feature the same baby blankets and scarves but this was completely different featuring fashionable items that would be great pieces for yourself, gifts for family and friends and something cute for your pet. So, if you are that type of knitter that is always looking for that next project, this is one that will you will really enjoy.
