Just like it says, these are quick knit afghan patterns that you will grow to love and use over and over again. What makes this quick knit is the fact they are made in strips to carry along with you at work, or on vacation. This allows you to really use up scrap yarns and make each strip in different yarns and colors! What a great gift idea when you have limited money! A great book to keep on hand when you need a gift and want to use up that scrap yarn too. Uses worsted weight yarns, knitting needles US # 11, 13, 15. What a great idea to be able to meld and use the different yarns and yarn textures together for one great afghan!
