About the Author
Top customer reviews
The introductory sections cover basics such as selection of needles and yarn for a project, a glossary of terms, and how to check your guage. There's an illustrated section on casting on and casting off which is very basic and then there are sections on design, calculating number of stitches, and how to fix mistakes. There are also discussions of knitting with more than one color, how to make a pom-pom, and how to fringe a scarf. These sections are short but very well done.
The core of the book contains patterns for 16 scarves and includes color photos plus suggestions and pictures of different yarns that can be substituted for each pattern. The stitches run from the very basic all knit beginner level to the very advanced challenging level. There is something for everyone here.
I have completed one scarf using a pattern in this book but substituting a similar yarn since the specific yarn in the pattern comes from England and is very expensive. That's the only drawback with these patterns - the actual yarns are not the types you can get easily in the big box craft stores.
I recommend this book for anyone who likes to knit scarves. It would make a great gift for a beginner. Having learned to knit by making scarves, I found that there was lot of new ideas for me to try. The finished products will make great gifts too.
I agree, this book is for the beginning or basic knitter (like myself) ready to branch out. I'm glad I purchased this book. It is helping me on the way to learn more knitting patterns and to become more confidant with my knitting.
