Review:

"More than 30 knitwear designers have contributed their innovative patterns to this impressive collection, which features gorgeous, full-color photographs of various scarves, capes, capelets and stoles. Because of their quick construction, editor Allen (co-author of Knitting for Dummies) calls scarves the 'comfort food of knitting,' likening them to, of all things, pasta. 'Like pasta, scarves can be created with little effort and few basic materials,' she writes. While this is true, the patterns found here are largely for intermediate and advanced knitters, though all knitters will appreciate the beauty and complexity of these designs. Kathleen Power Johnson's Lady Eleanor Entrelac Stole is an elegant creation of hand-dyed tweed yarns woven together in a vaguely medieval style, making it a cozy addition to any woman's wardrobe. And designers Debbie Bliss, Norah Gaughan and Lily Chin offer ideas for children, women and men that utilize color-work, beading, crochet and other innovative techniques. From Lisa Daniels's cabled Vintage Velvet stunner to Teva Durham's whimsical Blue Collar capelet to Amanda Blair Brown's chic, spiral scarf (aptly called Ruffles), this book has plenty of patterns to inspire creativity, as well a Design Notebook section for those who want to craft their own unique scarves." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

This collection of 31 elegant and ingenious scarf designs tap the expertise of more than 25 knitwear designers who offer new ways to think about this most basic of garments. Designs by Kathryn Alexander, Debbie Bliss, Nancy Bush, Lily Chin, Nicky Epstein, Sasha Kagan, Sally Melville, and Kristin Nicholas are included, representing a varied exploration of techniques that provide innovative ways to think about knitting and crochet. Sections on knitting and crochet basics, making a scarf without a pattern, and a designer's notebook with templates for basic scarves and suggestions for design variations are provided.

The scarves and shawls in this book are simply gorgeous. I am actually working on one right now and it is deceptively simple. I want to learn to crochet just to make some of the other scarves in the book.

There are some great beginner patterns as well as the advanced patterns. I want to make just about all of them!
