I can't tell you how much I love this book. I've loved vampires since watching Dark Shadows when I was growing up, all the way through Lestat and now Twilight. So, this book was a must for me. I knew that I'd love it because it had to do with two of my favorite things, vampires and knitting, but I didn't expect it to be as nice as it is. And not just the photography - beautiful photography is common in knitting books. Where this book stands out is this - the patterns are all on pages that are kind of yellowed and old looking with a gothic font, there are little "tid-bites" of vampire information on just about every page, there are two vampire quizzes, and there is even a page of tips on getting blood out of our knitting! That sounds kind of funny, but it's really very practical! Each chapter has kind of a theme and there is a little paragraph at the beginning of each one. The author's writing is really good - informative and yet with a sense of humor. I thought I knew quite a bit about vampires, but I learned a lot from this book that I didn't know.

As for the patterns, they are really nice. They are mostly accessories, which are my favorite thing to knit anyway. There are socks, scarves, capes, bags, hats, etc. A lot of them have kind of a gothic feel to them, but not so much that anyone couldn't wear most of them. There are a few with vampire sayings on them, but if you wanted to make them without the sayings or change them, that would be easy to do.

I wouldn't think twice about buying this book. I buy knitting books all the time and this is one of the most unique books I have and I highly recommend it.

The photos in this book are lovely. The book is called "Vampire Knits" and that is initially why I had to have it, but all the patterns could be used in other colors -- or even As-Is -- and never be associated with anything "vampire". There are a few kitschy patterns, but mostly they are just lovely, adaptable patterns. It was the kitschy patterns that caught my eye and made this a have-to-have book for me, but it is the practical ones that will keep me coming back to "Vampire Knits" -- that hoodie is TDF- and I'm way too old to say "TDF". :)

I haven't checked to see if my copy is one of the apparently-few books that have missing and repeated pages, but even if it does, I know that Amazon and the publisher will make good and swap it out for me. That is a publishing snafu and even IF mine is one of the defective, I will still give this book a five-star.

I'm almost finished with the Tourniquet Scarf for my son; he can't wait for the weather to get cool enough to wear it.

I love the premise of the book, the patterns and the photos.

I just hope the next book is 'Zombie Knits' :)

I was so excited to get this item in the mail, but I was a little dismayed at how much lacework is in the book. However, I would not be beaten, the patterns were just too beautiful, so I dove in. I am currently working on the Shapeshifter Shawl and it is coming out beautifully. I never thought I would be knitting at this level, but the items in this book gave me the push I needed.

This is a gorgeous book -- I admit I was drawn in by the cover, since there is a redhead (like me!) wearing purple (my favorite color!) and -- oh yes, it just happens to be called Vampire Knits. Now, i don't know a thing about the popular Twilight series, but I love my 19th/early 20s century literary vampires, and I love vampire movies of the 60s and 70s (and everything before that too) and I can easily imagine "my" kind of vampires in the context of these lovely creations. The only problem with the book is that it has a lot of mistakes in it, some of them quite frustrating. For example, the Lore Hoodie that graces the cover of the book says it takes #4, worsted weight, yarn, in the description, but it calls for a yarn that is much heavier. The corrections on the publisher's page update it to #5, bulky weight, though the yarn called for (Berroco Peruvia Quick) is listed as super-bulky over on Ravelry. So, if you didn't go to check all the possible errata before starting your project, you could find yourself quite frustrated if you choose to use something other than Peruvia Quick.

Aside from the odd typo though it is beautifully photographed, the patterns have lovely descriptions and there are amusing tidbits about vampires on many pages. I immediately made the Black Veil scarf in the recommended yarn (Patons Silk Bamboo) and it was a thoroughly delightful experience, with beautiful results. I also have the materials to make the Countess Bathory scarf, I started the Sidhe Shrug and am working on that hoodie as well. There are so few knitting books on the market that have this kind of creative and unusual spin -- gothic knitting is a perfect combination to my mind.

I thought the layout of this book was very creative, but the patterns lack creativity. These are very simple patterns that are not fitted or really shaped at all. The patterns are mostly simple squares and triangles put together in tried and true ways that are pretty easy. The layout of the book makes the patterns interesting, not the patterns themselves. I do like the colorwork in the book though, lots of paw prints, and red yarn to simulate blood.
If you are looking for patterns to wear such as creative sweaters then you may want to look elsewhere, but if you like accessories then you may like what the author has to offer.
