A Stitch in Time: 15 Quick Knitting Projects

By: Morgan Metcalf, Editor, AllFreeKnitting

We’ve all been there before. You started a sweater a couple of months back that you just can’t seem to finish. Maybe you just don’t have time to sit down and finish such a big project or, perhaps, you’ve lost interest. Whatever it is, we’ve got just the remedy with our A Stitch in Time: 15 Quick Knitting Projects collection. It’s time to give those long-term, advanced knitting projects a rest and take up something both relaxing and fun. After all, not every quick knit has to be a dishcloth or a basic scarf. With this collection, you get a variety of absolutely gorgeous knits from 15-minute scarf knitting patterns to 2-hour knit beanie patterns.

For those of you who can’t seem to get along without the longer projects, there’s no need to worry. We’ve also got something for you with our lovely weekend knits. Don’t leave your needles clogged up for months and months waiting for you to come back and finally finish that afghan you started so long ago. Free your needles and your mind with these quick knits. What’s even better is these quick knitting projects also double as the perfect last minute knitted gifts you’ve been meaning to get around to. The time is now. With our shortest knitting pattern taking only about ten minutes to complete, you can no longer use the “I don’t have time” excuse. There’s no reason you can’t get everything out of the way. So, grab your needles; get rid of your knitting funk with these super quick knitting projects.
