I like the book but, overall, felt that there were not enough patterns that I wanted to knit in order to warrant giving it five stars. Additionally, all the patterns are charted and none of them are written out. I am not a chart person and that makes the book more difficult for me to use.
Some of the patterns that I liked a lot include Raindrops and Rivulets, a cabled and lace hat designed by Faina Goberstein. It has a small rib with a cabled body. The Diamond Jubilee Slip-Stitch Hat, also designed by Goberstein, is in two colors and makes a lovely geometric pattern. There is a variegated green hat called I-Cord, Can You, designed by Linda Medina, that looks very warm and cozy. The Silver Plates cloche is a lace and cable knit hat that would be nice for winter wear. The Brioche du Jour Ribbed Scarf is bright in orange and purple, a natural show piece designed by Nancy Marchant. I love to knit cowls and especially like the Tiptoe Through the Tulips Lace Cowl by Angela Hahn. The Weekend Away Lace Gaiter is actually a cowl and is knit with decreases and increases and stockinette stitch. The Art Deco Faux Cables Scarf is cute, designed by Angela Tong. It is a mixture of knits and purls but looks more adventurous than that. The Victorian Lacy Lace-Border Shawl is knit in a chunky yarn with size 11 needles. It is worked from the outside in and the designer is Hilary Smith Callis. I like the Rockabye Baby Wavy Lace Blanket designed by Tanis Gray. It is perfect for a newborn. The Climbing Vines Cabled Leg Warmers are nice for keeping calves and ankles warm on cold days. They are very fashionable as well. The designer is Debbie O'Neill. For a nice present, try the Tilt-a-Whirl Lace and Garter Afghan. It looks difficult to knit but is actually much easier than it appears. It can be sized up or down and was designed by Therese Chynoweth. You Are My Sunshine is an adorable cabled baby sweater that is sized from six to eighteen months and designed by Robin Melanson.
Overall, I was not impressed with the sweaters or shawlettes. I also don't like working solely from charts. Other than these two minor criticisms, the book is quite nice.
