Staff Pick

These knits are beautiful basics. None are so intricate as to be difficult, and all are handsome enough to please even the grumpiest of friends. The book is organized according to how long each project takes to make, so you won't be caught with a half-finished project at deadline time.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When STC Craft published Joelle Hoversons Last-Minute Knitted Gifts in 2004, the response was overwhelming and today there are nearly 100,000 copies of this classic in print. Six years later, Hoverson is full of fresh, new ideas for beautiful gifts. So STC proudly presents More Last-Minute Knitted Gifts: an elegant collection of 30 projects organized according to the time it takes to complete them, from less than two hours to more than eight. Among the projects featured are sachets, bracelets, ornaments, mittens, gloves, hats, sweaters, baby blankets, and throws.

 

Understanding that knitters today love to personalize their projects but also need guidance along the way, Hoverson showcases many of the projects in several colors and yarn weights, and with optional embellishments and creative ideas for gift-wrapping.

An elegant collection of 30 projects organized according to the time it takes to complete them, from less than two hours to more than eight, this guide describes how to make sachets, bracelets, ornaments, mittens, gloves, hats, sweaters, baby blankets, and throws.

Synopsis:

Today's knitters are chic, smart-and busy. Although they love to knit and enjoy making gifts for family and friends, they're constantly faced with the challenge of finding enough time to actually finish what they've started. Last-Minute Knitted Gifts solves this problem. Joelle Hoverson, owner of Purl, the hip knitting supply store in downtown Manhattan, has designed more than 30 fun, fresh, beautiful patterns, most of which can be made in less than ten hours-some in as little as two!

Known for her keen sense of color, Hoverson includes instructions for classic gifts like baby booties and bonnets, sweaters, and scarves, plus imaginative options like a cashmere tea cozy, a felted yoga mat bag, floor cushions, and a poncho-surely something for everyone on the gift list. And to make each present extra-special, Hoverson offers easy tips on how to incorporate knitting and other yarn embellishments into the gift wrap.

This book has so many fun projects. As soon as I brought it home, I began knitting. Some of the projects are perfect for learning new techniques. Since they are small, they don't take too long to complete, and you have a nifty gift when you're finished. My favorites so far are the knitted lavender sachets, a clever design utilizing double knitting.
