Many knitting books have a few good patterns, but in this one, with almost every turn of a page, crafters will find something that makes them want to pick up the needles. The premise is a bit convoluted. The title “evokes the essence of fall and early winter,” but the projects offered in three chapters—“Farm Hands” (rustic yet stylish), “Ivy League” (classic New England), “Southern Comfort” (feminine and decorative)—don’t always seem to support the theme. That said, each project gets a lovely introduction, and the sweaters, scarves, socks, hats, and mittens are on display in crisply colored photographs, and some are helpfully photographed from different angles. The instructions are clear, and the schematics usefully placed. There’s bang for the buck here with more than 20 projects, all by up-and-coming designers, and all delightfully profiled. Knitters will return to this one again and again. --Ilene Cooper

My favorite patterns are the Barnwood Pullover knit with Manos Del Uraguay yarn in a rib stitched pattern with variegated dark gray yarn. The Burdock Cardigan is super lovely. It is knit in a bright green using worsted weight yarn. It can be used to dress up or down - it has that flexibility of use. I also love the Market Jacket in a soft tannish orange, knit with worsted weight yarn with running flowered cables and a collar. The Savannah Cardigan is sweet and light-weight, knit with sportweight yarn and size five needles. It is in a soft blue-gray hue with a low collar. It looks very feminine. The Abilene Cardigan caught my eye. It is knit in a dark gray with worsted weight yarn. There is a pattern near the top, the bottom of the sleeves and the sweater bottom, but most of it is strict stockinette stitch. I'd love to try knitting it, perhaps in a lighter color. I love the Bluebonnet Scarf. It is knit in a variegated rose color from Schaefer yarns, 50% wool and 50% silk, with size six needles. It is stunning, utilizing lace and beads. I have a friend named Elke who would love the Spanish Moss Leg Warmers. They seem to have her name all over them. They are in a light green hue with a lace pattern and are knit with fingering weight yarn.
When I get any knitting book I ask myself three questions:
Will I knit the patterns?
Are the instructions clear?
Will the book be a good resource?
The answer to all three of these questions is YES. I love this book.
