“Fun patterns…” –Northwest Herald
About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
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.

not a knitting instruction book, either--the knitting instructions in the beginning are meant more for review than teaching. get this book if you already know how to knit and dont depend on it to teach you.
