America's knitters have spoken! The 60 patterns in this stunning collection come from yarn stores across the US, who chose the styles their customers like best. Created especially for the book by more than 40 designers associated with the stores—an owner, employee, or customer—and featuring the popular and versatile Cascade 220® yarn line, the projects range from accessories (purses, shawls, socks, and hats) to baby items to home decor—all in a range of skill levels so both beginners and advanced knitters will find something to enjoy.

Sixth&Spring Books is the book division of SoHo Publishing Co., which publishes Vogue® Knitting, Knit Simple™, and other knitting and crafts magazines. Located in New York City, Sixth&Spring publishes 15 to 20 new knitting, crochet, sewing, crafts, and lifestyle titles each year, and has a backlist of more than 100 titles. Cascade Yarns was founded by Bob and Jean Dunbabin, who created a range of 100% Peruvian highland merino wools, including Cascade 220 (a worsted weight), to offer knitters high quality as well as affordability. Produced in hundreds of colors, Cascade 220® is one of the most popular yarns available today. The Dunbabins live in Tukwila, WA.From Booklist:
This book presents smart and sharp designs, beautifully photographed in color, with step-by-step instructions (and charts, when needed) down to the weaving in of yarn ends. But the adjective quick begs many questions. What’s the length of time involved? Is the pattern truly a speed-knitting one for all needleworkers (especially since most patterns have a range of difficulty between the two and three level out of four)? Designs, on the whole, involve some complicated work, such as cables, Fair Isle, and other intricate stitching. So, it is fair to ask these questions, yet we can’t help but admire the finished projects, such as animal vests for little ones, a cunning leaf headband, the holiday cut-holly hat, and an elegant garter-lace-striped shawl. A quick overleaf at the back of the book reacquaints readers with abbreviations and other basics. --Barbara Jacobs
