Next to best knitting book out there
I have not been knitting for long but i'm always keeping an eye out for good knitting books. When i saw this i knew i would love it. Not only did it have great hip, chic scarves in it but it also gave u nice directions on how to make each scarve. I have made at least 2 scarves from the book since i got it but have used different parts of different patterens for other scarves i have made. For example: i made a scarve that i hade wanted to add pockets to but was not sure how to do so. One of the patterens had how to make pockets (small ones, so i addjusted the length). So i used that. I deffenatly say that if u love to knit this is a good book to get because not only does it have how to knit scarves they are scarves that are very stylen and will never go out of style. Even if u do not use it alot (you could save it for grandchildren or even your own kids some day of maybe a good friend) it is deffinatly worth the money.Was this review helpful?

Excellent for us beginners
This book is wonderful for those like myself, just starting out and feeling a little apprehensive fearing they will appear matronly if not down right'old maid-ish' trying their hand at knitting. A lot of knitting books try to lure the beginner with intricate designs and patterns which can often intimidate instead of encourage. That's great for those more experienced in knitting, but as for me? Give me a book like this one that offers a beautiful simplistic pattern that is easy to learn and some encouragement by the celebrities that whole heartedly endorse this wonderful hobby. This book show its readers that this is a hobby for every generation and that you shouldn't be embarrassed to only be a beginner as many of the featured celebrities are also. I highly recommend this book to the beginners!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I really enjoyed this book. As a beginning knitter myself, it makes me see that I can create some beautiful scarves for myself and friends.These women are not professional knitters,just regular folks like us taking on a nice creative hobby. The photography is just awesome. I highly recommend the bookWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
