Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
AGERANGE: Ages 15 to adult.

Knitting has become a hobby for young stylish people and this book will appeal to the fashion conscious of any age who love to knit. It is beautifully photographed and filled with small projects, most of which are for intermediate to experienced knitters. The chapters are titled “Eclectic and Quirky,” “Textured and Modern,” “Pretty and Feminine,” and “Traditional and Folk”; and all require a certain flair to wear and skill to knit as even the simplest designs have fancy edgings or employ embroidery or other embellishment techniques. Some of the projects, such as the Tabard, are very advanced. Other designs, like the Wrap, which buttons over the tops of the arms, will appeal to a limited few who want a “modern, almost futuristic feel.” The project directions seem clear and easy to follow. The introduction, yarn information, abbreviations, techniques and glossary are well written and will be useful to a less-than-expert knitter, and all are written in a personal style that makes the reader feel like part of an exclusive club of fashionable knitters. Although the recommended yarn is all from the line sold by the author, she also indicates the generic size, type and fiber content so other yarns can be substituted. Reviewer: Nola Theiss

    Beautiful book for advanced knitters.

    I really wanted to love this book, but found it very difficult to use. I'm a beginner and felt very intimidated by the patterns. I really loved them, but because the level of difficulty, the book sits on the shelt. This is definately for an advanced knitter. The reason I gave it a 4 star was because it really is a beautiful book, but not the right book for someone like me. Maybe one day though.
