Iris Schreier is a genius at designing beautiful knits that look complex, but are really very enjoyable and easy to knit, once you wrap your brain around them. I've been working on the Sorbet Shawl for the past week, a lacy design that is a relaxing knit, once you set up the first few rows. You can look at your knitting, rather than having to refer to a chart or text. In fact, every time I work another one of Schreier's designs, I feel that I'm a smarter knitter, learning to recognize or "read" what I've knit.

The book is lovely to look at, well-organized, and has a wide variety of techniques to challenge any level of knitter. I'm planning to try one of the double-knitting projects next. Iris designs with her own beautiful Artyarns in mind, but offers a chart for substitutions if you want to try something else.

This book is another must-have for me, as I learn so much from Iris, and am inspired by her lovely designs. If you haven't checked out her other books, you must--they're great, too.

I purchased this book because Modular Knits is one of the most invaluable tools in my knitting arsenal. Reversible Knits combines beauty and genius in a series of fun-to-knit patterns! The patterns and tutorials are clearly written and well-illustrated, focusing on six techniques. In addition, Schreier includes a chart of yarn substitutions at the end of the book. The one caveat--and this is no fault of the author--is that the book is hardcover. I am a firm believer that all knitting books containing patterns should be spiral bound, or at least soft cover so I can take them to a stationery store and have a spiral binding inserted. Perhaps in a reprint.

I'm actually working on a pattern from another book based on double knitting, my first dk project, and bought this book for the tutorials, which are the best I've found so far. Thanks Iris!

If you're an intermediate/advanced knitter looking for a way to s-t-r-e-t-c-h your brain and add new skills to your knitting repertoire, this is an excellent resource. It's especially good at describing double-knitting.

On the downside, most of the projects are scarves and shawls. Snooze-o-rama. In a way, this makes sense because it's more likely that I'd want a reversible shawl than a reversible sweater. Still, I'd have liked to have seen the techniques put to use in a few more imaginative projects. Maybe a vest?

It's also puzzling that the publisher chose to put the most unattractive project on the cover of the book and that the photo doesn't show the "reversibility" of the knitting. Weird.

In spite of these shortcomings, it's great to have a new book for advanced knitters.

Wow! I received my book in the mail today and I am ga-ga over it. The patterns are beautiful and there are so many things that I want to knit that I don't know where to start. I love the idea that the projects will look beautiful on both sides.

My favorite types of knitting are lace and aran so I suppose I'll start there. The Early Morning Allure Shawl is just beautiful. I even love the colors they chose for it. The Unexpected French Twist will go with anything and the earth colors are my favorites to boot. Both of these patterns utilize a mohair and silk blend. This provides the strength of mohair with the softness of silk against the skin which is a real plus.

The Cable Freestyle Wrapping is beautiful and, again, I love their color choices. The SoHo Hat on page 92 is adorable as well.

I think my favorite pattern in the book is the Southport Lace Shawl. I love that this pattern along with many others do not utilize charts. I am a line by line knitter and do not do well with charts.

This book meets all three criteria that I have for a good knitting book.

It has patterns that I like.
The patterns are easy to read.
The book is a great resource.

Ready, set, knit - - here I go. I think I'll go with the Southport Lace Shawl first!

LOVED this book for its informative introduction to many techniques I had never even heard of. Found the book to offer a lot of fun & creative projects well-suited to the reversible format. The only problem I have had is that there appear to be MULTIPLE errors in the 2 patterns that I have worked from in this book - Bauhaus Lights Scarf & Artful Dodger scarf. Some of the errors are related to pattern details such as stitch gauge & the # of yards specified for a project however I found pattern errors in both scarves as well. The pattern errors should hit you in the face when you come across them so they are easily remedied...but I was rather mystified as to why stitch gauge & scarf dimensions did not match up. Only kind of complaining though...both projects came out beautifully!!
