From shawls and fichus to collars and cowls, this fun collection of 25 bite-sized knits has a project for every style and skill level. Veteran knitwear designer Moss ("In the Mood"), a regular contributor to "Vogue Knitting "and "Knitting" magazines, has created a fashionable collection of accent knits. Each of the book's four stylish sections--Country, Couture, Folk, and Vintage--contains knittable, wearable, and gift-able projects. Pieces like the festive Kardamili Shawlette or the leopard-print Kitty Capelet offer contemporary feel to classic pieces, while more unusual items like the delicate Vamp Boa, the sweet Garland Necklet, and the sassy Treasure Jabot offer lovely alternatives to traditional accessories. Several patterns feature colorwork, with additional forays into cabling, lace, and entrelac. Moss has provided plenty of useful diagrams and charts, and encourages knitters to alter or embellish each piece as they wish. The handy project index lays out thumbnails of every pattern in the book. This whimsical collection is perfect for the beginning or intermediate knitter looking to try out new techniques or use up her yarn stash. "--Publishers Weekly"

Just ordered the book and just wanted to post the webpage for others to use, so I am giving the book four stars for now.
Update 2014: Have circled back to browse thru Sweet Shawlettes again and am once again impressed with the lovely, innovative designs. However, am I the only one that thinks a pattern based on a specific knit stitch--specifically Feather and Fan for the Arabesque Scarf--should include instructions for that stitch? I had to look it up on the Internet and found comments about Feather and Fan being confused with Old Shale. (See source below) One is an 18 stitch pattern, the other is a 12 stitch pattern. Personally, as a beginner/intermediate knitter who hasn't memorized the finer points of the hundreds of knit patterns available, I think F&F should have been described explicitly. If I could drop my four star vote to 2.5 I would. The scarf pattern is given 4 pages in the book-why not supply complete pattern instructions?
To see difference between F&F and Old Shale see Northernlace.wordpress.com/2010/03/12/feather-and-fan-versus-old-shale/ post by Elizabeth Lovick who is in no way responsible for this review of Jean Moss' book. But I'm grateful for her helpful post.
I mostly knit shawls and scarves, so this was perfect.
It has a wide variety of styles and patterns and instructions
are easy to read.
Can't wait to get started on some of these gems. A perfect
addition to my library.
