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.
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' :)
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.Read more ›
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.
