Am so thrilled w/this book that I purchsed the 60 More Quick Baby Knits! Haven't begun any project yet because I don't know which one to pick first. They are all so cute, easy, and timeless designs.

I have knitted several projects from this book for my brand new grandson. Patterns are well written and garments are all lovely. Recommend this book for all intermediate knitters ( not beginners)

Consider carefully before buying, especially if you are a new or impatient knitter. As an experienced knitter, I can say that, although the patterns are inviting, this is definitely not a book of "quick knits," nor would I recommend it for beginners. Most patterns require intermediate to advanced skills and an ability to read and "interpret" patterns that are not well written in some cases. Be sure to check the errata posted on the publisher's website, as there are many patterns with errors. If you are interested in recreating the garment using the same yarn as called for in the pattern, you may be disappointed, as some colors have been discontinued and/or require an extensive search to locate.

Even with all these problems, there are some very lovely patterns and I will continue to use the book, being sure to consult the errata posts. Also, before beginning, consider doing a blog search for your prospective pattern . Some knitters have posted their experiences with a pattern, along with some very helpful tips, so that you can avoid the pitfalls they encountered.

I'm at novice-level when it comes to knitting - I haven't touched needles in probably more than a decade - but I started out with one of the book's "intermediate" patterns and found the instructions clear and easy to follow. I wouldn't recommend it for someone who has never knitted at all as it assumes a certain (but fairly low) level of knowledge regarding the basic stitches, but even this could be overcome with a few pointers. The glossary in the back helps. No doubt experienced knitters will glide through the patterns effortlessly, but should still find the patterns attractive and quick to produce. All the items seem pretty practical. The book seems to have been sponsored by a wool producer so all the patterns call for a specific type of yarn...but gave no clue as to possible substitutes in weight or ply for those of us who could not find the brand name in local stores. But even that can be worked around by following the gauging instructions given. Overall, a pretty good choice.

I hesitated ordering this book at first because the few patterns that they show were debatable to me however I took a chance and almost all the patterns look beautiful.

Two things to note, alot of comments are made about a misleading title. I see alot of books that say "quick knitting"and I dont know about others but nothing for me with knitting is "quick" and I am an avid knitter for sixteen years now so I did not order this book thinking anything about it was going to be very fast per say.

secondly the only slight complaint or thing to know is while these patterns are beautiful looking, I noticed alot of them do not offer different sizes which is a bummer. Some of the random patterns have two sizes but I am used to books that offer each pattern in the book in at least four different sizes. now some knitters could probably adjust the size on their own but I rarily have luck with trying to experiment with such things.

would I buy it again? yes.

The patterns look super cute, and there are a variety of sweaters, hats, blankets, and jumpers to make. I also like that all the patterns are in worsted weight yarn, which is easy to find (and therefore substitute).
However, these patterns are definitely for the intermediate to experienced knitter. Out of 60 patterns, only 4 are marked easy. All of the hats are knit in the round, which is fine (and quicker), but may not be for the beginning knitter (especially one without a significant needle collection).
Another issue I have with this book is the lack of sizing within the patterns. Many of these patterns are only written for one size, such as 6 months. Even the basic rolled edge cap on the front only offers two sizes, 0-3 months and 6-12.
So, in all, the book is ok, but not great.

This book and it's follow-up "60 More Knits" are both amazing. The designs are adorable, stylish, creative, modern AND classic; a difficult mix to nail. I just received this book so I haven't gotten to knit anything from it yet but my aunt has knit a few things for my twins and they are just perfect. She, a seasoned knitter, says the patterns are logical and simple to follow and true-to-size, and she had a lot of fun with them. The designs leave a lot of room for personal interpretation, which I love. It's very inspiring. I've ordered and returned a lot of different baby knit books and this series I will end up in my permanent collection. THAT says a lot.

From the book so far I've knitted one pair of socks using the pattern where stitches are picked up at the heel (page 58) while I'm on my third pair where short rows turn the heel (pages 18-20). This is the first short row pattern that I could follow. The short rows are explained better than any I've seen so far and the directions don't dangle off the page so much like other patterns. There is not so much of the assumption that you can read the mind of the pattern writer. You may still need to look up knitting directions in other books but for the first time I've confidently knitted short row socks.

A great book for a wide range of gift ideas...everything I've made has been the hit of the baby shower! This book and the second book in the series (MORE Quick Baby Knits) are just about all I use anymore for gifts as the projects are so very cute and most are actually quick...a few are more challenging but FUN. I've learned to adapt to different yarns, as all these are made with Cascade DK weight wool...and I have a "stash"..most projects are pretty flexible fit-wise..this is a must have book, even better than the second one in my opinion.
