3.0 out of 5 stars Not one of the best books I have bought.
The book has plenty of technique pages and there is progression in the difficulty of the patterns. There are 35 items to knit - I would probably only use 7 at a pinch. Its alright if you are into knitted place mats, wash cloths and phone covers. The tea cosy is very nice and the two items on the front cover are sweet. Basically a lot of it is the sort of bazaar knits...

This review is from: Cute and Easy Knitting - Learn to knit with over 35 adorable projects to make for the home, as gifts and for yourself (Paperback)
With 35 projects, you are bound to be interested in several of these easy makes. There are great items for both the home and for you. They make great gifts too. There is a good technique section to set you on your way. It is clear and easy to follow. The book is divided into graded projects with three chapters: Getting Started; Getting Better; Now You Are Really Good. The easiest knits include knitted bunting, a mug cosy, covered coat hangers, a simple textured potholder, a lovely striped pillow, a phone cozy, a tablet device cozy, a heart garland, a super lace scarf, a lavender owl, a neat clutch and a pencil pot holder. A variety of stitches are used and I think even this section would satisfy anyone. It is superb for beginners. Now you have gained confidence we move onto section two, which includes projects that require a little more technical skill. They include an intarsia hot water bottle cover and a toadstool key ring that requires shaping skills. There are wash cloths, a cute cottage doorstop, a bolster, bath mat and gorgeous egg cosies, flower napkin rings, lace placemats, mitts, a storage basket, plastic bag holder, coasters, scarf, pencil case, pot holder and daisy book cover. Again more than enough to satisfy anyone. The final section has projects that take a little more time and skill. They include a tea light shade, a sweet tea cosy, a chic lampshade, a dog draught excluder (it has the US spelling of Draft in the book), a bag, a lovely knitted wallet, a throw and a backpack. All in all there are so many practical projects here, you'll never stop knitting. Easy to follow instructions and beautiful photographs, so this book makes a perfect gift too.

This book looks like it has some fun easy projects. I bought it for a friend so I will need to see how she finds actually making the pieces.

Basically a lot of it is the sort of bazaar knits you find in magazines and often ignore.
I found this to be a big disappointment after buying the toy range that this designer has done in the past.
