The book covers basics, yarn weights, cast on and off, simple fringes, basic crochet for finishing edges on some of the shawls and has knit term abbreviations. Then we get to the patterns. As soon as I opened the book it was wow, ooh, ahhh. I was pleasantly surprised to find I liked the garments inside even more than the cover (in fact I probably like the cover shawl the least out of all the 19 designs to choose from).
Designs are a small indigo shawl with a few burnt orange stripes, a peonie pink scallop shall, a striped shawl in pink and mauve, there's an openwork shetland shawl, and a stunning triangle shawl that has open work around the neck and a solid centre - the colour choices for this one make it elegant and unique - just to describe a few.
Many of the shawls are triangles, some are rectangular. There's patterns, lace stitches, cables, ribbons and a dragonfly intarsia design that's pretty. A very cute shawl is the Sheep Shawl done in white with little knitted sheep faces--that's the only quaint or silly/cute one in the book--but I would make it!
This is a great purchase and I can't wait to warm up the needles and make some. Happy Knitting. By the way, if you like this book, you may also enjoy these books: Vogue Knitting on the Go: Ponchos, Vogue Knitting on the Go: Shawls Two and if you crochet, Vogue Knitting on the Go: Crocheted Shawls
are definitely unique to some pretty traditional designs, it's one of the
favorites in my library. I also bought Shawls, Two, which is just as good.

I've made several projects from this book and they are superb. The book is very packable for on-the-go and clearly written. Great stocking stuffer for knittersPublished on November 15, 2013 by Helen Morrison
I just finished the pattern on the cover and was pleased that the pattern was easy to follow. There are a couple of other patterns in the book that look interesting. S.E.Published on September 29, 2013 by S. Ellis
I found no great shawls in this book and felt I could have done better with an online pattern search. Also, the book is very small, which I don't like. Read morePublished on June 26, 2013 by Anne S. Mcindoo
This book was terribly dissapointing. It is filled mainly with ridiculous shawls that most people would never wear. A sheep shawl? Come on! Read morePublished on February 16, 2010 by P. Menio
I love Vogue Knitting's "On the Go" series. Though a few of the patterns are duds, for the most part the styles and colors simply pop on the pages. Read morePublished on November 18, 2008 by Amazon Customer
