Slow Fashion Made Fast - 12 Thick & Quick Knit Projects

I have been in love with knitting and I love creating things for my family and home. Leisure Arts, Inc. has some of my favorite knitting books with easy to read instructions and simple patterns for even beginners.

The most recent book I've utilized is SLOW FASHION made fast. I was able to knit a blanket within 2 weeks out of this book! It was extremely easy to make and SO SOFT! I found a wool blend yarn, just in time for fall and winter weather. The pattern was easy to follow - the only thing I omitted was the tassels because they annoy my husband.


This pattern is found on  page 32 of the book and is called the Garter Pyramid Blanket. I had to use a slightly smaller needle (it asks for size 19 and I could only find size 17 at my local store). It still turned out very close to the size (40"x44"). I really love the Moss Cocoon Cardigan on page 24 and want to attempt that next. This book is perfect for this time of year!!!

Every Leisure Arts, Inc. book I've received has general instructions in it on stitches and techniques which I find very handy. I've done a lot of new stitches because of this and become a better rounded knitter! I love it.

This particular book has 12 projects:

  • Latvian Braid Cowl
  • Blanket Basket
  • Eyelet Striped Wrap
  • Wall Hanging
  • Moss Cocoon Cardigan
  • CrissCross Cable Poncho
  • Garter Pyramid Blanket
  • Twist Front Headband
  • Linen Scarf
  • Loopy Pillowcase
  • Ribbed Tam
  • Slouchy Tote
These are all perfect for winter knitting! I can't wait to start on my next project.
