Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* An admitted Francophile, which shows both in her adoring narrative and her 2009 book French Girl Knits, Griffin-Grimes fills her follow-up title with paeans to the art of French life and its bon gout—not just in dressing but also in the way of living. Per Coco Chanel’s dictum, Fashion fades; style is eternal, the author-designer piles our plates high with 16 designs for hats (toques and berets, too), shawls, and wraps, all lovingly named after one Gallic inspiration or another. At the beginning, we’re treated to word pictures of morning, noon, and night in France, and the various habits and desires of its populace, both native and expat. Her devotion to le français extends to an insistence on details, as shown in her instructions, sidebars, color photographs, and illustrations. Choose from Jasmin (head scarf) or Tartine (striped hat), from Tutu (slippers) or Tattoo (shawl). Every item includes words of wisdom—e.g., working a gauge for circular knitting—and meticulous directions. One caveat before a rush to fashion any of her latest: most projects have been designated for the more experienced knitter. --Barbara Jacobs

I love this book and the adventure through France on which it takes you. I will probably knit a majority of the patterns, and that makes the buy a success for me. However, the book is not bound in the correct order (the glossary appears in the middle of a pattern and before the last 2 patterns), so if that kind of thing bothers you (as it does me), I'd wait for a corrected printing. **Update: I got a perfect copy resent from the publisher, and it seems the problem affected very few copies, so I'd recommend buying this book in a heartbeat.

I absolutely adored this book so much I had to get the regular French Girl Knits book. The patterns tend to knit a little larger even when knit to gauge, so either go down a size or go down a needle size. Sweet designs, very happy!

Beautiful articles to knit. Not for a beginner, which I am, so I had lofty goals of making some of these delicate, lacy things with 1-2 size needles. I need to learn the basics before I tackle this book, but it's an excellent book with gorgeous knitted items and clear directions.

I can't wait to get started on my projects from this book! I just purchased the yarn I need. This book has so many cute projects that have lovely photographs and even some history on france tidbits thrown in. I hope my projects turn out just as pretty! :D

A lovely book with a wide variety of projects and a good variety in complexity in projects. I've made a couple of things so far, like with most knitting books I would recommend looking to see if there is an errata available before getting to0 far along in any project.

Fun and funky projects from the French Girl folks. I especially love the lace shawl. It may be my first lace project! The book is nicely photographed with clear instructions.
