14 patterns for baby/lap blankets using 2 strands of worsted weight yarn on size 13 needles. These do knit up quickly. I increased the width of the blankets and used 3 strands of sport yarn for one of the patterns.
A good basic collection. Easy to follow. Good for beginners.

This book contains 14 patterns. I bought it for just one pattern, the drifting stripes baby blanket, a copyrighted pattern. The patterns are standard baby blanket patterns. The gimmick is the knitter uses two strands of yarn held together and knits on size 13 needles. Using doubled yarn the knitter only has to cast on 70-73 stitches so the pattern goes really fast. The patterns call for four 100 gr balls of Encore Worsted yarn, but any worsted yarn would work. The book is worth $8.00 since the knitter doesn't have to figure out anything--just follow the instructions. The suggested colors look beautiful in the colored photographs. Twelve of the patterns use just knit and purl stitches, two patterns use knit, purl, and yarnover. So a beginner knitter could really complete these projects. I knit for charity and knitting baby blankets is really time-consuming. Don't know if you could really complete all these projects in eight hours but I am sure they are much quicker than the usual patterns you find. You can view the beautiful drifting stripes baby blanket on the website Ravelry along with comments by knitters who have knitted it.
A basic baby blanket knitting book is "Our Best Knit Baby Afghans" by leisure Arts which contains 33 patterns and costs about twice as much. It also contains patterns for the advanced knitter. I think this is a better book for the beginner knitter .

This book is great. The instructions are really easy to follow. You don't have to be a pro to get these done.

Very simplistic. There really isnt' anything in here for the advanced knitter. I love beautiful exciting patterns, and this one is really more for a beginner. The book was a huge disappointment for me.

I was making the original "8-hour" blanket for years. Then when I saw this book, naturally, I bought it. I have maybe made 75% of the versions! Somehow, I lost or accidentally tossed the book! So happy that I was able to find it on Amazon!

Whenever you need a soft, cuddly, easy blanket that you can make in eight hours or less just turn to any of these patterns. Make sure to use Plymouth Encore! You will be amazed by your ability...and the results
