Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

More than 30 knitwear designers have contributed their innovative patterns to this impressive collection, which features gorgeous, full-color photographs of various scarves, capes, capelets and stoles. Because of their quick construction, editor Allen (co-author of Knitting for Dummies) calls scarves the "comfort food of knitting," likening them to, of all things, pasta. "Like pasta, scarves can be created with little effort and few basic materials," she writes. While this is true, the patterns found here are largely for intermediate and advanced knitters, though all knitters will appreciate the beauty and complexity of these designs. Kathleen Power Johnson’s Lady Eleanor Entrelac Stole is an elegant creation of hand-dyed tweed yarns woven together in a vaguely medieval style, making it a cozy addition to any woman’s wardrobe. And designers Debbie Bliss, Norah Gaughan and Lily Chin offer ideas for children, women and men that utilize color-work, beading, crochet and other innovative techniques. From Lisa Daniels’s cabled Vintage Velvet stunner to Teva Durham’s whimsical Blue Collar capelet to Amanda Blair Brown’s chic, spiral scarf (aptly called Ruffles), this book has plenty of patterns to inspire creativity, as well a Design Notebook section for those who want to craft their own unique scarves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful scope of knitting skills! Jan. 31 2007
Format:Paperback
Being an advanced knitter, I perused this book with passing interest. Scarves, really. In fact, this book offers a full range of knitting techniques in manageable projects: lace, fairisle, entrelac, short rows, colorwork and more. The scarves are as robust or as delicate as the choice of yarns. Further, investing in two or three balls of cashmere and learning a new technique creates a beautiful aesthetic piece with a sense of economy. Each technique demonstrated as a scarf can easily be applied to a larger project. I'd recommend this book for all skill levels.
