Make '60 Quick Luxury Knits' with Cascade Yarns

If your knitting skills are at the intermediate or advanced level and you enjoy making and wearing high-end knitted items, then “60 Quick Luxury Knits (Sixth & Spring Books/$17.95) has “easy, elegant, projects” that’ll make you the envy of fellow knitters this fall and winter.

The featured patterns are designed with “The Venezia Collection from Cascade Yarns” and a range of stitch patterns that add detail and texture to the knitted projects.

Patterns include color photographs of the finished project, along with a diagram and easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions. You may find it a bit difficult choosing which georgeous garment or accessory to make first, but you’re sure to have tons of fun deciding! Among the 60 stylish pieces are hats, mitts, a snood, scarves, cowls, leg warmers, a clutch, a shawlette, a belt, a button embellished beret, a beaded necklace and lots more.

For a chance to win a copy of the book, just email me at jbrown@detroitnews.com and tell me a story about your experience as a knitter. Please put the word ‘luxury’ in the subject line, and REMEMBER to include your name and address.

GOOD LUCK!!!
