Knitters who think of a scarf as a boring beginner's project may rethink their aversion to knitting this handy garmant when they see this collection of 27 imaginative patterns. Employing optical illusion, inventive structures, and clever shaping, Barr (Sweaterscapes of the American West) expands the definition of scarf to include knitting techniques (such as short-row shaping and knitting around on two double-point needles) that may be new to even experienced knitters. She emphasizes structure more than color with designs-some of which are based on architectural detail-that will appeal to knitters of all levels of expertise. An excellent choice for large public libraries.
