    Good book if you are an accomplished knitter

    I now know why I prefer crochet over knitting. I LOVE the look of knitted scarves but I don't have the ability to decipher the instructions of a knitted pattern. I can read the abbreviations and glossary section or the definition of the stitch pattern in the pattern itself. The combination of stitches is just a bit much for my mind to get around. And working from a chart has never been something I have been able to do, even in a crochet pattern.

    The front and back covers have a "built-in" bookmark for making the pattern you are working. With 25 beautiful patterns, there will be one for every person for which you need to create a scarf. There are brightly colored photos of the item and even a close-up or two so you can see the details. The instructions are clearly written if you read "knit"! The beginning of the book even has a chart that provides information about yarn weights and the recommended needles to use with each type of yarn.

    As an accomplished knitter, this would be a wonderful book for you to create lovely scarves as presents.
