Knit & Wrap: 25 Capelets, Cowls & Collars Paperback – September 7, 2010

Top Customer Reviews
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.
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.
