Review

"If you're of the opinion that knitted gifts carry a meaning, you can literally spell it out with this book. Knitted Letters is a useful resource book with plenty of patterns to incorporate letters, names, phrases, even poems into your projects, from hats and scarves to cushions and bags. Knitting "Personalise any knitted gift with this creative collection of alphabets. From the classic serif and sans serif typefaces we see in magazines, to more graphic letters imitating handwriting, stencils, Gothic print and circus signs, there's so much here to spark your imagination. The Knitter --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I awaited this book with great anticipation...especially because of the pillows on the cover that spell LOVE..Silly me...I thought they would have directions in the book for all the letters of the alphabet for each project...Well, I was wrong!!! I wanted to make pillows for someone's name...no instructions except for these 4 letters...if I want to chart other letters myself, I DON"T NEED THIS BOOK...SO unless you want to waste your money, skip it!!!!

If I could give this book less than 1 star, I would. There are many pattern errors and when there are no errors, the instructions are often confusing. I have purchased yarn and found the projects impossible to complete,and I am an experienced knitter, Also, I have contacted one of the authors(Catherine Hirsrt) on her website with questions about the errors and have received no response.DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK.

This is a fun little book. Not sure if the subject required a stand-alone book.
For someone who does not want to do the math and write a pattern (me) the book fits a niche.
