Book Review- “60 Quick Knit Baby Essentials”

We just can’t get enough of Cascade’s “60 Quick Knits Books” series, which turns out to be a good thing! Because just as quickly as we knit our way through one of these books, Cascade publishes another! Each book from this series differs enough from the last to make it worth your while, but always is packed full of the essentials. Without a doubt, there is always something for everyone.

Which brings us to, “60 Quick Knit Baby Essentials- Sweaters, Toys, Blankets & More in Cherub from Cascade Yarns”.

Cherub Book0001

The title of this book certainly says it all. Everything that you could possibly ever dream of knitting for the latest addition in your life, all designed by an array of uber talented designers.

To add to the ‘greatness’ of this book, there is a wide range of yarn gauges that are included in this book. So versatile! Cascade’s Cherub is available in a sport weight, DK weight, Aran weight and even chunky weight!¬†(However there are no chunky weight patterns in the book). Cherub is available in a nice range of colours, and is easily washable, making it¬†perfect yarn for any baby/children’s knitting.

Should you not care to knit with synthetic fibres, Cascade Yarns has a great line up of cotton and wool options that would easily plug into these patterns as substitutes.
