I picked up this book and immediately decided to purchase it after seeing some of the cutest and fashionable cowl patterns I've ever seen. I started my first project "Tease" right then and there and was enjoying the project tremendously and it was flowing along quickly as well, satisfying my need for the occasional "immediate gratification". There are however, at least a couple of mistakes in the hood row counting, exs: " rows 13-16, repeat row 2 every other row 4 times" ; "repeat rows 11 and 23" (row 23 has not been reached) ; row 23 may have been written as a RS row ? but in the hood, 23 is a WS row ? and the final decreasing rows are written in a confusing manner with the stitch numbers not adding up. I'm a fairly experienced knitter and I'm having difficulty interpreting them. I do wish there were schematics to make it easier to "adapt & improvise". In all though, I do love the book and the designs and do not regret my purchase.

There are more easy level patterns than advanced. I love it! I am a novice knitter. Sometimes I do not want to work on a detailed pattern, yet I want to create a look like I did. These capelets, cowls and collars create that look. Most of the styles required bulky yarns and size 15 or 19 inch needles. I was able to complete two projects in less than three days!

New knitters may enjoy making the capelets (8 designs), cowls (10 designs), and collars (7 designs) in this book. However, to my eye, the finished accessories are not very attractive. Most of the garments are knit from worsted, bulky, or super-bulky yarns that visually overpower the small-scale projects. The heavy yarns also add bulk to cowls and collars that will probably be worn under winter coats.

The capelet shown on the cover is not typical of the other capelets, which are generally shorter and quite loosely knit. One "lacy" capelet is heavily adorned with ribbons at the neckline. Many of the cowl/collar patterns are for wide garments that stand up around the neck and chin. One sweet little ruffled cowl, knit from lighter-weight yarn, falls in soft folds around the neck, like a moebius scarf.

As with all Lark Books, this book is attractively presented, and it is reasonably priced. However, the patterns are not challenging. For intermediate and advanced knitters, the patterns will be of little interest, unless the knitter needs some very quick-to-knit gifts for female friends and relatives.

There are many excellent scarf pattern books in print, but three particularly good ones are Scarf Style: Innovative to Traditional, 31 Inspirational Styles to Knit and Crochet (Style series); Scarves: A Knitter's Dozen; and Shawls and Scarves: The Best of Knitter's Magazine (Best of Knitter's Magazine series). There are also quite a few attractive scarf and capelet patterns to be found in the inexpensive "Knitting On the Go" series from Vogue Knitting.

The patterns in this book are great and the photos are beautiful. They have included information about the designers which is interesting to see in addition to the 25 patterns of varying difficulties.
This is the first pattern book I've seen showing exclusively capelets, cowls and collars and I think they've kept the designs up to date and young but great for all ages.
I loved "Catch" for it's simple design and I can't wait to try the other patterns.

I knit and crochet most every day and I buy at lot of knit and crochet books, this one I drives me crazy. I really like most of the designs, but here are my reservations: first I made "tease on page 25" the yarn for that one is discontinued and I tried some other yarn in the same gauge,but that did not work out. My second one was "impulse on page 19" again with yarn that is not easy to find or discontinued. I checked my gauge on this one too, but the finished wrap fits a small child! I am going to use this book as inspiration only. I am not wasting my time on a other design from this book. This is a new book, I expect to find the yarn in my local stores or online.

I agree with the reviewer who spoke about the yarn sizes used in the projects in these patterns. I love the idea of nice little warm neck knits and think the concept is fresh and nice for gifts, but the overwhelming use of worsted and bulky weight yarns makes the finished projects look gawky even on the well photographed models. I don't hesitate to purchase new knitting books, but this is one of the few I've returned because I know I won't use it. If the projects were shawls, the patterns would be more adaptable, but it is a mismatch of clever styling with chunky materials. Would love to see a similar theme with fine yarns and beautiful patterns. Since the items are small, the most luxurious yarns could be used and the items could be worn under other garments more easily.

I discovered this book through my local library and I was given the opportunity to look at it first before purchasing. I am an advanced beginner but the person who recommended the book to me at the library is an intermediate/advanced knitter and she loves this book. I cannot wait to try out one of the patterns.
