Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Knitted ponchos-for now, at least-are in as fashion accessories. These two titles are excellent, so if the demand is there and you can afford both, do make the investment. Otherwise, consider Viva Poncho if your patrons fall into the young, trendy, "learning-mode" category and Ponchos & Wraps if they're a tad older and looking for classic designs and more challenging knitting techniques. Viva Poncho features a handy chart listing skills required and skills learned for each project and offers 20 poncho and capelet patterns, while Ponchos & Wraps grades patterns by difficulty level and features 22 in all, including some beautiful knitted lace garments. Both assume a basic level of knitting expertise. When demand warrants, public libraries cannot go wrong with either title. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    PONCHOS & WRAPS - a knitter's dozen

    First let me just say the service I have received from B & N was, on all fronts, just simply excellent!

    I purchased this book because of the Sleeves in your Pi pattern that I want to knit up. Greatest surprise has been the other patterns are about 95% items that I would also like to knit. Not usually the case, I must say. Honestly speaking I cannot comment on any (if any) errata or complications as I haven't yet begun the pattern, but on reading it over I cannot find any "glitches".

    This book is a great addition to the shawl/poncho enthusiast's library!
