Not just for winter wear. Good "easy" projects to wear on cool Spring evenings too. Very fashionable, up to date styles. Notice there are things to make for guys too? Uses a bulky type yarn and quick knitting jumbo needles US # 11 and 15. Super fast to whip up for gifts or for your next church bazaar. We love the slouchy hat, and you can't go wrong with scarves for teen gifts too. A very good book to keep in your library for last minute items!
