Format: Hardcover
Although I have been a fan of Nicky Epstein's other books, this one was a real disappointment. It is stunningly photographed--worthy of a coffeetable book, really--but the photographs are often blurry, set in dim lighting, and focus on the flowers at such strange angles it's hard to see what the finished object will look like--not useful in a knitting instruction book. The typeset is tiny; again, attractive to look at from afar, but hard to read when you're trying to follow a pattern and manage needles at the same time. Also, several of these patterns are already featured in her other books; much of it feels like a rehash. The directions seem too complicated for new knitters, although more experience knitters can worth through them with a bit of effort. It's a shame; just adding a couple of additional sentences to each one would have made a difference. There are a couple of things I might make, but this book is really not worth the money. I would definitely not buy it if I had to do it again. Save your pennies and buy new yarn instead.

I went ahead and purchased this book despite the somewhat boring patterns. There are a handful of flowers that are really pretty, but the majority of the patterns are rather dull. It's nice to have, but not a book to run out and purchase. I believe that Nicky Eptstein's "Knitted Embellishments" is a much better book.

. . . and the garden is blooming! Nicky's collection of knitted & felted flowers is amazing! Creativity is brimming on every page! I wondered how many flowers could one knit - well, hundreds! The photographs are inspiring and beautiful. Quick to knit; the patterns are fun and easy to follow. Whether you are an accomplished knitter, or barely past your first scarf, you'll be amazed at the flora you can create. (Note: new knitters, you may need a little extra help on some projects, but you'll grow new skills) I have been searching for a book full of feminine floral embellishments, and this is it! I am going to have flowers on everything this year. Most of the flowers could be added to gifts and packages for an extra special touch. It would have been helpful to see more of the flowers in use, but I guess Epstein leaves the door open for us to find our own creative ideas. Many yarns seem easy to find or substitute, plus there is a listing in the back of where to buy from the less common companies. This is MUST-HAVE for your knitting library!

There were several typo's or errors in the instructions which would have caused many problems for inexperienced knitters. My classroom teacher had to alter the given pattern instructions in order for our flowers to turn out correctly. I would not recommend this book.

Not what I had expected. The yarns used in the book are yarns that are hard to find or that I have never heard of before. The patterns are not very exciting. Too many felted projects. I am actually thinking of returning it. I have seen better flower patterns in the free patterns and the knitting magazines.

A knitted flower

Can be any hue.

Nicky Epstein is one of the luminaries of the knitting world. Known for her innovative use of embellishments, Nicky Epstein's Knitted Flowers presents a bouquet of blossoms suitable for every occasion and outfit. This reference volume presents more than thirty-five different floral designs, as well as several patterns using the flowers.

Epstein divides the book into five sections based on the method of construction: stitch pattern flowers; petal constructed flowers; cord flowers; felted stitch pattern flowers; and felted cut flowers; with the majority of the designs using the first method. Knitted Flowers provide knitters a starting point to explore their flights of fancy. As Epstein suggests: "The flowers can be layered, and stems and leaves may be added. Bobbles, bangles, buttons and beads sewn to the centers bring the flowers an extra touch of beauty."

Nicky Epstein's Knitted Flowers isn't an essential addition to a knitter's library; however knitters looking for unique accessories, and those who love flowers, are sure to find inspiration here for years to come. Clear instructions and large, color photos are provided for each design.

Armchair Interviews says: This is sure to be a welcome addition to most knitters' collections.

This is the perfect book if your are looking for inspiration! I'm so bored with plain jane sweater patterns. This book gave me tons of ideas to spice up boring sweater patterns by adding great flowers to them. There's a very nice hat and rose purse pattern in this book also. Some of the projects are very simple and makes you wonder why you didn't think do it. Others will need to be read a few times but the outcome will be great.

Very dull pictures. variety of flowers is really bad.
It doesn't worth that money. If you really interested in flowers knitting or crocheting I would strongly recommend
