5.0 out of 5 stars International collection, February 10, 2003
This review is from: Folk Vests: 25 Knitting Patterns & Tales From Around the World (Folk Knitting series) (Paperback)
Cheryl Oberle returns with another book in her series of internationally flavored knitting patterns. This book is all about vests. 25 separate patterns for less than a dollar a pattern - a great value. I've had the pleasure of learning vest construction from Cheryl and know that these patterns contain the little details that will make the vests work - i.e. armholes that don't gap and such.
For those of you thinking of buying the book sight unseen here are some details that might be helpful:
---three traditional fair isle designs (2 pullovers and one button front)
---eight single color designs - bavarian twists, the many buttoned vest (cute!); irish with the vertical x's and o's; a celtic lattice pullover; a tunic length 'bookworm' button-front; a mandarin collared texured button front; a traditional v-neck men's pullover with four columns of cables; a casual, all garter vest with a shawl collar; and a fine yarn, v-neck button front.
---three vests with wide vertical bands and a single button - done in African, Peruvian and Korean colorwork patterns.
---one vest with vertical stripes designed for the Nepalese recycled silk yarn.
---three vests knit fair isle style but with bold varigated yarns on a black background.
---two Japanese inspired panel designs.
---two traditional Scandanavian looks - a pullover and a button-front.
---a side to side vest with Navajo patterning (but easy to adapt to other looks).
---a traditional vest with a big lace collar.
Even as a person who rarely wears vests, I enjoy having this book on my shelf. The photography is crisp and the the text is clear. If you like to wear vests, that this book would be a treasure trove of projects.
