Juggling careers, families, and demanding schedules often leaves us with little spare time. What better way to use these precious free moments than to tackle a quick and easy knitting project? Weekend Knits presents twenty-one basic yet sophisticated projects that are appropriate for knitters of any skill level.
Each of the projects, including those with colourwork and cable designs, are deceptively simple to knit. From a Mohair Cardigan, a Cable-Knit Belt, or wee Cap and Booties, each project has been carefully designed and requires minimal shaping and finishing techniques so you can create a portable, no-fuss design in 48 hours or less.
Offered in an array of luxurious fibres and exquisite colours, the projects are as easy to knit as they are fun to wear. Even inexperienced knitters can start a fabulous faux-fur Tank Top on Thursday and wear it to a party on Saturday evening. Maximize commuting time by fashioning a snazzy Baby Blanket for a weekend baby shower, or stitch up a pair of Seed-Stitch Mittens and wear them to work the next day.
The patterns serve as blank canvases, so we encourage you to experiment with yarns, colours, and embellishments and let your imagination take over. Windows of opportunity abound to squeeze in a row or two here and there, adding up to a completed garment or accessory in no time. So before you step out the door, grab your yarn and needles, make room in your tote for your stitching - and get ready to knit on the go!
