Format: Hardcover
I am a beginning knitter, who really enjoys this little book on scarves and gets a lot of inspirations and ideas from it.
This book has 16 project ideas for the beginning to intermediate knitters. It teaches me, a beginning knitter, several new stitch patterns, such as seed stitch, mock rib stitch, cable stitch, slip stitch, border stitch, open stitch, drop stitch, traveling vine stitch, feather and fan stitch, and Fare Isle stitch.
Although the book starts with some useful tips on how to cast on, cast off, carry a second colour yarn and join a new yarn, this is not a book you can use to learn knitting. You will have to know the knit stitch, purl stitch, rib stitch and perhap yarn over before you can follow the patterns in this book.
Having said that, I have to stress the instructions and tips to make each scarf are simple and easy to follow. When more advanced skills are required, the book has clear illustrations showing how the steps are being done with the yarn and needles.
Each scarf is beautifully photographed and sometimes with an additional zoomed-in picture showing the pattern in details. For each pattern, the book also suggests additional 1 to 3 different yarns to try and even shows pictures of the same pattern in the suggested yarns.
All the scarves in the book are really pretty and stylish, something a teenager would not mind (and probably would love) wearing. Although I have only tried one pattern in the book, I would love to try almost all the projects.
Although I really like this little book, I still have two small complaints about it. First, the book is comparatively expensive since it only has 16 projects and 90 pages but costs about the same as other bigger pattern books. Second, although the book suggests different yarns to try, most yarns suggested in the book are a bit pricy to my liking.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun book for all knitters Jan. 22 2008
By NJ Consumer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was attracted to this book because I wanted to make a scarf and was looking for some ideas. The book has an attractive cover and when I looked through it in my local store, I found new stitches and some really interesting scarf patterns. It also has some very useful information that is great for all levels of knitters.

The introductory sections cover basics such as selection of needles and yarn for a project, a glossary of terms, and how to check your guage. There's an illustrated section on casting on and casting off which is very basic and then there are sections on design, calculating number of stitches, and how to fix mistakes. There are also discussions of knitting with more than one color, how to make a pom-pom, and how to fringe a scarf. These sections are short but very well done.

The core of the book contains patterns for 16 scarves and includes color photos plus suggestions and pictures of different yarns that can be substituted for each pattern. The stitches run from the very basic all knit beginner level to the very advanced challenging level. There is something for everyone here.

I have completed one scarf using a pattern in this book but substituting a similar yarn since the specific yarn in the pattern comes from England and is very expensive. That's the only drawback with these patterns - the actual yarns are not the types you can get easily in the big box craft stores.

I recommend this book for anyone who likes to knit scarves. It would make a great gift for a beginner. Having learned to knit by making scarves, I found that there was lot of new ideas for me to try. The finished products will make great gifts too.

4.0 out of 5 stars great for beginners Nov. 11 2004
By M. Poller - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
There are 16 scarf patterns and lots of advice especially for beginners so this would be a great book to start out with. My favorite scarf is the final one using a double decrease technique to form diamonds and it is explained very well. Lots of different yarns plus alternate yarns listed as well for many of the patterns. I'm docking her one star because she suggests beading as an embellishment and has a photo of it but nowhere does she tell how to do it. And on another lacey pattern which she admits can be difficult, she should have put in a chart to make it easier. But the pictures are great and the format and price are just right.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Can't Believe I'm Knitting These Patterns! Feb. 11 2007
By Leigh - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you can knit, purl, increase and decrease but nothing more (like myself) please try this book. I can't believe I am knitting the fan pattern. I have played with the lace pattern and getting a little better at it with every try. This book is perfect for me. I can take basic knitting skills and turn them into something pretty. Any yarn can be substituted as I only use synthetics. Learn "Fair Isle" or patterned knitting too. I have found the instructions and pictures to be very clear and helpful.

I agree, this book is for the beginning or basic knitter (like myself) ready to branch out. I'm glad I purchased this book. It is helping me on the way to learn more knitting patterns and to become more confidant with my knitting.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome Jan. 19 2009
By Skinny - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was so thrilled to find this on Amazon. I had seen it in a shop. I try to patronize our local buisnesses but at the time I didn't quite have the cash that I needed to purchase the item at our LYS(Local Yarn Shop). So I found this on line at an affordable price plus the shipping cost. I love the book and so do all my friends. It is great for beginners and intermidiate knitters. It provides just enough of a challange for those levels of knitters. There is more to this book than knit every row in garter stitch.

5.0 out of 5 stars My First Knitting Book Aug. 23 2007
By Melissa S. - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This was my first knitting book purchase and I absolutely love it. Not only is the book a different and neat shape, but the patterns are easy to follow and there are some helpful tips and know-hows included. I like how the book isn't too big so I am able to carry it almost anywhere. I have already completed 3 scarves out of the book in a matter of 1 month! I recommend anyone to purchase this book.
