I love to knit mittens! And i have a lot of experience.
I don't think it a good mitten book for beginners, because Its not any how-to guide, there is just a lot of patters which is exactly what I was looking for.
I've would recommend this book for those of you who love mittens and are looking for new inspiration and new patterns. Some of this designs are really pretty and modern, and I can't wait to get started on a new project!
The book is filled with excellent photographs, including closeups, and most feature a product or item associated with the particular region. (An exception to this is the wooden shipping crate clearly stenciled with Milwaukee, Wisconsin, pictured with hat and gloves from the Aran Islands, which I find curious, although there is, no doubt, an excellent reason for this choice!)
While there are only four actual glove patterns, the fingerless gloves and some of the mittens are ideal candidates for converting to gloves. The hats are mostly in the beanie/cloche style, although there are also berets, and a wonderful British driving cap with coordinating knucks.
To quote Donna Druchunas: "Whether you are looking for an easy project or something more challenging, you'll find patterns in this collection that you'll love to knit and wear."
I've already found some likely candidates!
