I am going to finish this project, as I already have invested so much time in it. I don't know if I will dare myself with another project from this book. Certainly not when I need to knit something quick and easy.
The patterns range in difficulty and style. There are shawls, scarves, hats, mitts, cowls, and even a belt.
As with all knitting books, I ask myself three questions:
Are there patterns in this book that I want to knit?
Are the patterns easy to read?
Is the book a good resource?
The answer to all three questions is 'yes', but not without some qualifications.
The book is beautifully presented and definitely inspires you to start knitting! However, as with all pattern books, you're more likely to enjoy it if you like the patterns included, so be sure to check out all of the projects in this book on its Ravelry source page. My favorites are the Bow Clutch by Devin Cole, the Button Cable Beret by Kim Haesemeyer, the Buttoned Cable Cowl by Angela Tong, the Knotted I-Cord Belt by Alex Capshaw-Taylor, Solid and Stripe Infinity Scarf by Steven Hicks, and the Two-Color Cloche by Elena Malo. Hmmm, I guess it's obvious that I like buttons and cables...
If you're an intermediate knitter who enjoys making women's accessories, this may be the right book for you!
