If you haven't noticed by now, we live in a pretty fast-paced world. Many knitters are looking for small and convenient projects that can easily be carried around in a purse or small bag, and Tanis Gray has provided it with her wonderful compilation of knitting patterns that require the bare minimum yarn yardage. 3 Skeins or Less - Fresh Knitted Accessories is the pattern book for the knitter always on the run. It's also good for the knitter on a budget. After all, when a pattern calls for six (or even nine) skeins of yarn, the bill starts to get a little pricey.

3 Skeins or Less contains contributions from top knitting designers including Ann Weaver, Susan B. Anderson, Faina Goberstein, and Romi Hill. With such a vast array of designers, it should come as no surprise that they have all come up with wonderfully unique projects you'll just love casting on and binding off— from luxurious boleros to short and sweet cowls. Since these knits also range in yarn weight, the twenty-five gorgeous knitted accessories printed in this book are sure to keep you covered from January to December. Whether you're working up knits for yourself or need more gift inspiration, this book is great to have on hand. These timeless patterns can be used again and again to create wonderfully cozy knits for you and everyone you know.

That's not all, though. 3 Skeins or Less provides not only the patterns but also the knowledge with which to complete them. In the back of the book are a number of easy-to-follow picture tutorials to help you get through each pattern. From casting on to binding off, 3 Skeins or Less has an answer to many of the questions you may come up with while knitting. In just one compact book, Gray has managed to fit so many wonderful things. This is definitely one knitting book every knitter should own. After all, who says you can't look absolutely fabulous in less than three skeins of yarn?
