Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The sequel to 2009's popular French Girl Knits helps stylish knitters create accessories that will add charm and flair to any outfit. The collection is organized by type of project (hats, mittens and socks, and shawls and wraps), and each project is lovingly styled and photographed. Skills required to make the projects include intermediate-level lace and colorwork, though there are some simpler projects suitable for adventurous beginners. VERDICT The popularity of Griffin-Grimes's patterns, combined with the variety of small projects (always popular with knitters) make this an excellent addition to knitting collections.

    Knitting I never thought of!

    This book, the followup to FRENCH GIRL KNITS, has the most interesting patterns I've seen to date. I'm especially taken with the I-Cord Fascinator pattern, but there are other interesting ones as well, including the one on the book cover. Lacy thigh-high stocking patterns, hats, fingerless gloves -- the list goes on!
