Chunky Knits: 14 Quick and Easy Step-by-step Projects is a well-illustrated book of patterns with plenty of pictures. The projects are mostly sweaters of varying types, but we especially like the detailed instructions for adding embroidery, beading, and sequins to your knitting. Try the beaded sweater and sequined shawl patterns, or use the general techniques described to jazz up any knitted item.
A DailyKnitter.com staff knitter was thrilled after bringing new life to an old sweater by simply adding beads to the bottom and cuffs.
