Overview

Beginners love knitting scarves because they're easy; experienced knitters love them because the projects are fast.

Continuing Storey's popular die-cut Knit! series, Knit Scarves! features 16 unique scarf patterns that range from the toasty warm to the way cool to the tres chic. Candi Jensen—a craft and needlework designer with 25 years of experience—discusses everything from choosing the proper needles to avoiding such gaffs as mixing acrylic yarn with mohair yarn (acrylic needs a dryer to keep its shape, while mohair should never see the inside of a dryer).

The friendly, step-by-step instructions and color-coded charts make Knit Scarves! perfect for knitters of all skill levels.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Fun patterns…” –Northwest Herald
Library Journal
Storey has added two entries to its colorful series of knitting pattern books, which features sturdy, die-cut, paper-over-board binding and an affordable price tag. Scarves are a popular first project for beginners and are so easy to knit that surely another book about them is overkill. Or is it? Jensen (Hooked on Crochet) combines patterns for a wide variety of scarves with a wealth of knitting tips and ideas to assist readers in designing scarves. A range of alternative yarns is pictured for most scarves. Designer McCarthy includes even more knitting instruction, reflecting the complexity of sock knitting compared with scarf knitting. Longtime knitters will appreciate her tips for achieving a "jogless jog" when knitting stripes in the round and for knitting with five double-pointed needles instead of four. Like other books in the series, these are aimed at readers who know the rudiments of knitting, i.e., how to knit and purl. Each design is pictured in a full-page color photo with full instructions in a reader-friendly, row-by-row chart of knitting instructions. A good buy for public libraries.
