This is a beautiful book. The projects are so inspiring. Even if you just knit scarf, it won't be "just another" scarf. A great way to expand your skills without delving into lace.
The book is gorgeous, but the charts and the measurements on the diagrams are too small to read on the Nook version. Changing font size doesn't help, since they are inserted as images. This renders some of the patterns useless and is a problem for a lot of knit and crochet books published on Nook. The diagrams need special attention for e-publishing and the publisher is not taking the time to make sure every aspect of the book is working before making it available. Buy the physical version of this one if you want it.
I was looking for a knitting book that took me beyond the typical knit and purl routine...this is it...what a joy!
This is a good book to have in order to understand to knit Brioche and explain very clearly
This book has the information you need to be able to knit the brioche stitch...but you must absorb the information. Brioche knitting is very different from knit-and-purl, cabling, dropped stitch and a host of other stitches. Getting used to having, say, four stitches on your needle when you see six loops of yarn is daunting and confusing at first. But - get used to seeing every other stitch with a 'little cap' over it (kind of a yarn over, if you will), and you'll be well on your way. In addition to many gorgeous patterns at the end of the book, there are sections showing many beautiful brioche stitches - for both one-color and two-color knitting - with instructions on how to make each stitch. Once you absorb the idea of pattern changes taking place only in every first of four rows, this type of knitting will seem easy - honest. Give it a try, and check out the author's website, too!
