More About the Author

Everyone agrees I make a mean quiche. People consistently seem to think I'm athletic and health-conscious, when in reality I'm neither. I despise the taste of fish. The weirdest thing I've eaten---to the American palette, at least---is kangaroo (delish!). Morocco and Vietnam top my list of place I'd like to visit. I adore roller coasters, but am always terrified before my first trip down one---just the anticipation of that heart-stopping pull up the first hill, chains clanking away in a sickening fashion---aagh, I'm trapped! Why did I choose to go on this ride?! The cars will jump the track and I'll be turned to burger!---makes my knees go weak.
I think dozing off in bed with a book on a rainy afternoon is about the most pleasant activity there is.

There are more easy level patterns than advanced.

I haven't made anything from this book yet - not that I don't want to.

I am not wasting my time on a other design from this book.

I picked up this book and immediately decided to purchase it after seeing some of the cutest and fashionable cowl patterns I've ever seen. I started my first project "Tease" right then and there and was enjoying the project tremendously and it was flowing along quickly as well, satisfying my need for the occasional "immediate gratification". There are however, at least a couple of mistakes in the hood row counting, exs: " rows 13-16, repeat row 2 every other row 4 times" ; "repeat rows 11 and 23" (row 23 has not been reached) ; row 23 may have been written as a RS row ? but in the hood, 23 is a WS row ? and the final decreasing rows are written in a confusing manner with the stitch numbers not adding up. I'm a fairly experienced knitter and I'm having difficulty interpreting them. I do wish there were schematics to make it easier to "adapt & improvise". In all though, I do love the book and the designs and do not regret my purchase.

Please note that I basically posted the same "comment" in response to another reader's earlier review. However, I decided that it might be useful to include a separate review as well, since mine might not be so forgiving regarding the stars given. A lot of reviewers have described the projects in the book and I'd also say that many look similar to each other in bulky yarns so it's difficult to notice what might be unique about each. However, there were about 7 (out of 25) that I liked enough to purchase the book; four of those were not bulky yarns/gauge, and one explained how to knit it in any yarn.

It was nice to see a little information provided about each designer, and I liked the layout of the book. The yarn weight and yardage was provided for each project, and the notes were very helpful.

The problem for me is that the first one I decided to make had obvious errors. It's extremely frustrating to have done an exhaustive search for errata on the Lark and Sterling sites and not even be able to find a corrections page for their publications. (Under "Project Updates" Lark has three 2009 craft titles referenced with corrections. Based on reviews, there should be a lot more!) Since this has happened several times before, I'm inclined to return the book, and it's definitely convinced me to avoid their books in the future.

I also sew, so will mention that based on reviews of her "A Is for Apron" book, this author seems to have an excessive number of errors in her books regardless of the craft! That's why I hesitate to recommend "Knit & Wrap." The knitting designs in "Knit & Wrap" are by all different designers, so it's difficult to know what to expect from the other patterns - i.e. if they'll all have mistakes.

There are more easy level patterns than advanced. I love it! I am a novice knitter. Sometimes I do not want to work on a detailed pattern, yet I want to create a look like I did. These capelets, cowls and collars create that look. Most of the styles required bulky yarns and size 15 or 19 inch needles. I was able to complete two projects in less than three days!

The patterns in this book are great and the photos are beautiful. They have included information about the designers which is interesting to see in addition to the 25 patterns of varying difficulties.
This is the first pattern book I've seen showing exclusively capelets, cowls and collars and I think they've kept the designs up to date and young but great for all ages.
I loved "Catch" for it's simple design and I can't wait to try the other patterns.

Format: Paperback
New knitters may enjoy making the capelets (8 designs), cowls (10 designs), and collars (7 designs) in this book. However, to my eye, the finished accessories are not very attractive. Most of the garments are knit from worsted, bulky, or super-bulky yarns that visually overpower the small-scale projects. The heavy yarns also add bulk to cowls and collars that will probably be worn under winter coats.

The capelet shown on the cover is not typical of the other capelets, which are generally shorter and quite loosely knit. One "lacy" capelet is heavily adorned with ribbons at the neckline. Many of the cowl/collar patterns are for wide garments that stand up around the neck and chin. One sweet little ruffled cowl, knit from lighter-weight yarn, falls in soft folds around the neck, like a moebius scarf.

As with all Lark Books, this book is attractively presented, and it is reasonably priced. However, the patterns are not challenging. For intermediate and advanced knitters, the patterns will be of little interest, unless the knitter needs some very quick-to-knit gifts for female friends and relatives.

There are many excellent scarf pattern books in print, but three particularly good ones are Scarf Style: Innovative to Traditional, 31 Inspirational Styles to Knit and Crochet (Style series); Scarves: A Knitter's Dozen; and Shawls and Scarves: The Best of Knitter's Magazine (Best of Knitter's Magazine series). There are also quite a few attractive scarf and capelet patterns to be found in the inexpensive "Knitting On the Go" series from Vogue Knitting.
