This is a well edited and beautifully produced book. The patterns are stylish, with something that will appeal to all age groups and sizes. Each pattern comes with heart smart tips from the designers. Many of the patterns incorporate hearts in the design in a subtle way. Best of all they are knit in the most eye pleasing gorgeous shades of red yarn. I found several projects I would like to knit, a hooded sweater and a lace shawl are at the top of my list. There are knitting tips and heart healthy recipes in their own appropriate sections. I am really pleased I ordered this book and suggest that it would make a great gift for your knitting friends and family.

This is a fabulous knitting book. It is suitable for a wide range of knitters from the expert to the beginner. I bought it for one of Kieran Foley's lacy shawls,
but discovered so much more when I opened the book. It is put together with finesse, include healthy living tips by the many designers, is beautifully
photographed, but most importantly is full of stunning knitwear. Kieran's shawl does not disappoint. But there is more: a red hoodie, a ruffly edged V-neck,
a lacy heart market bag. The cover has a yarn wound heart making the art on the cover itself a complement to a country home.
This will be a beloved book.

This is a beautiful book, a book with wonderful projects for beginning knitters through more advanced knitters, a book with purpose beyond knitting. I have a copy for me and purchased 2 others for friends. Being a knitwear designer myself, I pay attention to the accuracy of patterns plus the inclusion in glossaries of all the techniques one would need to be able to complete a project without having to guess at what the designer intended, and after having knit 2 of the projects (Jared Flood's mittens and Kristen Ashbaugh-Helmreich's market bag) both projects came up completely without errors, suggesting a great team of proofreaders and editors. We knitters can be stopped in our tracks by sloppy pattern writing and I find none of that here. I am impressed that Kaffe Fassett, Mr multiple color, would endorse this book devoted to the color red, the color for heart disease. I am devouring Knit Red!

I saw many of the sample garments from this book at a knitting trade show in June, and was very excited to purchase a copy of the book myself. "Knit Red" is the brainchild of Laura Zander, who owns a very successful on-line and bricks-and-mortar yarn shop called Jimmy Bean's Wool. Zander had the idea to put together a book of patterns in order to raise awareness and money for women's heart health. The statistics are staggering: for example, more women die from heart attacks than do men. Yet heart disease is often seen as a disease that is predominantly an issue for men. Not anymore.

There are over 30 patterns, contributed by such eminent knitting designers as Debbie Bliss, Martin Storey, Jared Flood, Norah Gaughan and Deborah Newton, as well as a few designers who are not quite as well-known but are extremely talented. Garments include sweaters, cardigans, shawls, socks, mittens, hats and more. All the patterns are for women with a few home items (nothing for men or kids) and all are knitted in vivid red to symbolize the heart connection. The sizing ranges from pattern to pattern, and several patterns are one size fits all (such as the shawls). Yarns range in gauge from fingering to chunky, and include high-end luxury yarns as well as yarns available at big-box craft stores; in any event, it should not be terribly hard to use the Craft Yarn Council designations to substitute yarns. Difficulty levels range from patterns knit mainly in stockinette, to lace, beaded and cable designs that are more advanced. Photography is beautiful and stylish.

Haven't had time to read through all the book, but there are a lot of good suggestions for healthier eating and better life style. Not in a "preachy" way, but by people who are sharing what has helped them.
On to the really good stuff--there is a vast variety of patterns and really great projects! There are a couple of shawls in particular that I believe will be on my project list soon! Beautiful designs and a lot of them integrate a heart pattern, and what better for your heart and soul, but to meditate and knit. What I am doing typing this? I have to get knitting!

Not as many interesting patterns as I had expected. Too much promotional material and not enough content. Only 1 pattern I liked.

This book is wonderful. But tears flow as I attempt to follow directions with most of the patterns.Yarns suggested are very wrong for the patterns. Were I a beginner I would be so angry. But the pattern directions either were made by a group of people or never edited by those who made the designs. I am using different yarns, needle sizes, and now attempting to use my wisdom from the years of knitting and making very beautiful scarfs, totes,, Please have a meeting with all who are involved in this production and redo the book. Knitting , especially with a feeling that perhaps I am contributing toward bringing peaceful moments to those who use knitting to relax, is an age old delight. Please provide a completed book referenced as "errata" for this book. Dr. Patricia J. Gray
