Product Description

Size: 4" X 5.5" | Color: Black

Nicky Epstein - whose blockbuster "Edge" books have sold more than 125,000 copies - presents a treasury of fabulous knitted afghans and it's sure to become another hit for this always-popular author. These masterpieces, taken from her personal collection, range from the elegant to the truly fantastic: they'll absolutely enthral and inspire Epstein's many fans and knitters everywhere. Those who favour simplicity will love the monochromatic White Sampler, as well as a blue Wedgewood Afghan. For knitters who like to walk on the wilder side and work with vibrant colours, there's the irresistibly intricate intarsia of a Musical afghan, or the detailed panels of the Twelve Days of Christmas.

I can't wait to knit it.

When I went to the publishers site to see if there was an errata document the book does not even appear on their site even though it has been out 6 months.

This is a beautiful book. The pictures are gorgeous and the assortment of afghans is lovely. I was disappointed in how few patterns are really new! Most of them have been published in a previous book by the same designer, "Knitting for Your Home". The "from her personal collection" reference in the title misled me to believe these were previously unpublished patterns. But if you don't have a large collection of knitting books already, this one is beautiful.

This book is beautifully presented, it's a work of art in it's own right. These afghans are for the serious knitter who's prepared to spend big bucks on their heirlooms. Having said that, the designs are quite spectacular and would be a challenge and a joy to knit. A friend commented that some of them looked a bit like they had been made on a knitting machine, which is true. Most of these designs are great, and the ones that aren't so great can easily be modified so they don't look quite so fussy. This is a lovely book, though for most of us it's a 'one day I'll make one' book.

Hats off to Nicky Epstein - or should I say covers off! This book is phenomenal. I collect knitting books and there are not many amongst the recent onslaught of books that I find add anything to the science and art of knitting. Nicky's books do. All of them in general and this one in particular are fantastic. She has a style and sense of color that is inspiring. Note: not all of the designs are new. I believe that at least one was in an issue of Vogue Knitting in the mid 90's. I do not consider that a minus. It is great to have all of her designs in one place so I don't have to tear up my magazine stash trying to find that one elusive issue.

This is the first time i have given a book 1 star. I love making booties for gifts to new parents. This would have been perfect if I could actually make a pair from this book. The first two pair I tried to make had errors in the pattern that were difficult to work through. When I went to the publishers site to see if there was an errata document the book does not even appear on their site even though it has been out 6 months. It would not be right to even donate to library. Tossing this one in the trash.

I understand that several reviewers have complaints that there is quite a bit of repetition here, but that's not a problem if you don't have the previous appearances of the afghans, as I do not. I see lots of Nicky Epstein's work style here. A great deal of color work, some delicate and some brighter. Some texture. In all quite a bit of variety, with great production values for the book itself.
I would not recommend this for the beginner, unless you are really adventurous, or planning ahead to be an expert. There is little here to start off a new knitter safely. I would gather some good basic techniques and ensure that you don't have lots of bad habits first, before trying to tackle most of these.
Some of the colorwork that looks really intimidating is simply duplicate stitch, so it's not nearly so difficult to produce, but has impressive results. There are a couple of afghans here that would give me pause before tackling them, and I LIKE a challenge, so be warned.
However, I think this is a fine book if you don't have lots of her other work in your collection. I had never seen any of these before, so I'm really pleased.
I would caveat, though, that in my experience of working with her patterns before, to be really alert for what is on your needles v what is in the pattern. If in doubt, go with your needles. Also, I have nearly always found that she seems to prefer a much lighter fabric than I do, so I gauge down by at least 2 sizes, sometimes 3. If in doubt, gauge, gauge, gauge

Do not waste your time or money trying to decipher these patterns. There are row and stitch count errors in nearly every single pattern. There were clearly no testers or editors who could do simple math.

This book is simply scrumptious and inspiring. Some of the best things are the full-page photographs of the afghans with no artsy staging or lighting, so you can really see what they look like.

Color Name: BlackSize Name: 4" X 5.5"
I'm a dyed in the wool afghan knitter and I love knitting cables and knitting color. That's what this book is all about. It is definitely not an afghan book for the beginning knitter but if you have gotten the essentials of knitting under your belt, this book has beautiful patterns to try.

There is a wonderful intarsia section with the possibility of all kinds of adaptations. These quilts would be especially wonderful for that child (or inner child) in your life.

My favorite section is the cable/aran section. I drool over the afghans here especially Diamond Drapes. My favorite color afghan is the Mudcloth one. Having travelled to Africa, this afghan brings back wonderful memories.

I am also an avid lace knitter and I think that the Diamond Lace afghan is extraordinarily beautiful and feminine. I can't wait to knit it.

I applaud Ms. Epstein on not using charts except for intarsia for which they are essential. I hate charts. I love that her patterns are written out line by line. For knitters like me, it makes the difference between buying a book or leaving it on the shelf.
