Editorial Reviews

Crochet Me
"Simply the single most elegant fiber arts book I've seen to date."
Textile Fibre Forum magazine
"This is one of the nicest books of scarves I've seen in ages...truly imaginative."
Knit 'N Style
Saying 'incredible' in ten different languages would be a good way to begin this review . . . definitely a must-have book.
Knitnet.com
Some of the most innovative and interesting scares you can imagine.
INKnitters magazine
All of the design are beautifully photographed showing stitch detail and the colors sing!
Knitty.com
Absolutely not what you'd expect for a book about scarves.... Very few rectangles, but a lot of delightful surprises.
Knitting News
The designs are wonderful and creative. There are interesting and helpful notes given with each pattern.
Library Journal
This would appear to be the year of the scarf, to judge by the number of knitted scarf pattern books published in recent months. Scarf Style is by far the best of the bunch-a pattern book for knitters who wish to go beyond the boring "cast on 20 stitches and knit one row after another for 60 inches" type of pattern. Allen, editor of Interweave Knits magazine, has collected 31 very diverse scarf designs-27 knitted, four crocheted-from a who's who of the best-known knitwear designers on the planet, including Debbie Bliss, Lily Chin, Sally Melville, Nancy Bush, Nicky Epstein, Sasha Kagan, and more. Intermediate and experienced knitters will want to make many of these eye-catching scarves, which include a color-on-color scarf so versatile in design that you can wear it as a shawl or wrap it around your neck or waist. Highly recommended for large and even small public libraries where demand warrants. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
