Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

There are many books about knitting shawls and scarves, but not very many offer the extras that this one does. In addition to the 22 designs featured in the body of the book, the final chapters inform readers about the multifunctionality of some of the pieces—different ways to knot and tie scarves, as well as the best looks for scarves of various lengths and widths. As for the projects themselves, there are enough choices to keep knitters busy for a long time. They include a lush hooded scarf; a versatile lace offering that can double as a vest, a sweater, or a shrug; several cute capelets; and a scarf that incorporates beading, likely a new technique for some knitters. Full-page color photos allow readers to really see the projects, and the instructions seem clear and easy to follow. Special stitches used in the patterns are demonstrated at the book’s conclusion. An attractive package with something for knitters at all levels. --Ilene Cooper

Review

"There are some sweet sophisticated patterns in this collection...She creates a look that is romantic, yet contemporary, with a range of scarves, shrugs, and shawls that are sure to be the focal point of any outfit! This book offers endless inspiration." —Knit 1-2-3
 
"My favorite feature of the book, which in my mind makes it well worth owning if you knit a lot of scarves, is the section called "How To Wear." This is the key to all mysteries when it comes to wearing scarves, shawls and shrugs, including the clever convertible ones with buttons, but also covering different ways to tie them so they don't dangle haplessly—they look chic." —Kay Gardiner, author of Mason-Dixon Knitting

This collection features over 22 patterns for accessories designed by Hatton and knit in luxe Rowan yarns.

What I found to be an extra nice touch is that there is a section called How To Wear which explains the different ways to wrap and tie your knitted creations.

I bought this book for the pattern for the color block scarf (middle bottom photo) since I have a Rowan Kidsilk Haze addiction. I was pleasantly surprised that I am interested in making at least ten other iems from patterns in the book. I haven't started my scarf yet but from preliminary reading of the pattern, the instructions seem clear.

A bonus item in this book that makes it especially worthy of five stars is a section showing various ways to wear the scarves. A nice extra feature to include.

This is an awesome knitting book for those who like to knit scarves, shrugs or shawls. It is particularly nice that the book opens with full-color pages containing pictures of all the projects. I was especially drawn to the Triangular Scarf in a lime green that is easy to knit. It looks more like a mini-shawl to me than a scarf. The Loop Scarf in a nice light brown hue is textured and lovely. The Fair Isle Stole is classic and is a knitting project that any Fair Isle lover will savor. The Mobius Wrap in a bright turquoise is knit in a seeming basketweave pattern and looks comfy. The Leaf Detail Collar is a scarf that pulls through a hole created in the far end. It is knit up in a gray-blue hue and I think I will knit it for my granddaughter. The Lace Block Shawl is very delicate and can be a challenge to knit, but looks well worth it. The Multiway Stole can be used two ways - either as a classic stole or it can be buttoned to look like a short sleeve cardigan without much of a back. The Crescent Shawl is another lace wonder knit up in a lovely lilac colorway. I'm not a fan of shrugs but even I was taken by the Frilled Shawl. This shrug has great texture.

I'm glad the book contains a section on how to wear your shawl. Often, I think there is only one way but the portraits shown indicate a wide variety of ways to wear your new creation. Again, these are large photos that are clear and precise. The book ends with a 'Techniques' section that goes into things like provisional castons, short row shaping, mobius shaping, knitted-on edging, cables, no-turn bobbles, lace, two-handed Fair Isle, Fair Isle carrying yarns, and picking up stitches for edgings.

All of the patterns are written out and charted so depending on your preference, both ways of knitting are included.

I have to say Scarves, Shrugs & Shawls: 22 Knitted Designs with Their Special Techniques is a gorgeous pattern book for knitters. There is a wide array of beautiful scarf, shrug & shawl patterns in this collection. The creations in this book are meant to be made using Rowan Yarns.

I myself have not tried any of these patterns, my review is based on the design, layout, clarity and variety within this book. However, looking within these pages makes me green with envy over people who can knit like this!

The beautiful knitted designs within this book are showcased with clear and vibrant photos. These patterns look to be clearly written and in detail, with photographs and diagrams included.

There's a section called Special Techniques, which shows how to complete a wide variety of techniques needed for the patterns.

What I found to be an extra nice touch is that there is a section called How To Wear which explains the different ways to wrap and tie your knitted creations. The designer shows you different ways to wear your finished projects. One of the stole patterns can be worn in four different ways, as scarf, shrug, cape, poncho and bolero. I would have never thought of that without seeing the How To Wear section.

Overall, I think with its nice variety of elegant knitted designs, Scarves, Shrugs & Shawls: 22 Knitted Designs with Their Special Techniques is a lovely pattern book for any knitters collection. I think this book would be for intermediate to advanced skill lever knitters. I myself am at beginners level, so I'll save these patterns for when I hone my knitting skills a bit more.

This review is my honest opinion. I did not receive any type of compensation for reading and reviewing this book.

I'm a big fan of the British yarn and design company Rowan, and Sarah Hatton is one of my favorites of their impressive stable of designers. This collection features over 22 patterns for accessories designed by Hatton and knit in luxe Rowan yarns. Photography and styling are beautiful and don't compete with the lovely designs.

What I especially like about this book:

1. Variety of techniques used -- from stranded knitting to lace, cables to ruffles to textured stitchwork, there's something for everyone here.

2. Variety of items -- even though the book is limited to scarves, shrugs and shawls, there are a wide variety of shapes and lines represented. Traditional rectangular scarves and triangular shawls, but also layering pieces that button, a cropped cable wrap, a capelet with collar, scarves so large they could be called stoles, even a hooded scarf.

3. Versatility of garments -- they can be worn many ways depending on your style. They will be easy to customize via yarn and color choice.

4. Quality directions, with charts, lots of photos, helpful tips.

This would be a terrific holiday gift for a knitter (let your LYS help you pick out some yarn to go with) or treat yourself. Lots of options for making gifts for others, too.
