Authors Schreier and Kimmelstiel show you the basics in an illustrated introduction -- their instructions on double knitting is wonderful for those who want to make those professinal looking scarf projects where both sides are reversible-- and then move on to chapters focusing on today's latest textures, like cashmere, eyelash, fur,suede, lattice, ribbon, sequins, silk, and old favorites like wool, angora and mohair.
Because of the beauty of the texture created, a little goes a long way: all of the projects cited in the book are small ones: scarves, shawls, gauntlets, purses and caps. Each of the projects is worked in two types of yarn sets--one to show a more evening look and the other a daytime one. One only has to look once at the "Black Tie Wrap", the "Trellis Stole" or the "Ribbon Wrapped Scarf and Shawl", to know that texture alone rules the day.
Simple patterns show off these magnificient yarns to full effect -- with the right yarns sophisticated creations are only two sticks and a few hours away. Now that I own the book, does anyone out there know where to get such lovely yarn at even lovelier (lower than knit store) prices?
