"Knitting in No Time" is a modern collection of 50 projects that offers new and established knitters the knowhow they need to create a quick-to-knit range of garments and accessories using simple stitches, with the completion time for most projects estimated at just a week. Created by knits designer Melody Griffiths, the projects include both traditional and new knitted garments, from bright skinny scarves to fingerless mittens and deliciously enveloping shrugs, shawls and ponchos, as well as more substantial outerwear and a range of matching accessories. Projects can be extremely fast to knit; for instance, choose a triple-twist wool and even a beginner can create a roomy knitted tote in just half a day, while a soft pull-on hat can be made in three hours. Extra-large knitting needles and super-thick yarns produce great results in no time, and there are also tips on knitting in the round and other techniques that will speed up the knitting process. Each project comes complete with an estimated making time and its own series of tips, including how best to handle the yarn, the right type of cast-on and speed-knitting hints.
