5 out of 5 for this reader folks! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this pattern book. Sweet Shawlettes by Jean Moss is a great pattern book of 25 projects (some smaller than others) ranging from cowls, caplets, shawlettes and scarves. Very fashionable now a days I can see pairing many of these patterns with fancy dresses to plain ole jeans and cotton shirts. The book is sectioned off in four parts, Country, Couture, Folk and Vintage. Patterns are clearly written with charts displayed for easy interpretation. I have to say my absolute fave pattern was the Evergreen scarf (love the fringe leaves) which I am going to whip up as a Xmas gift this year. a close second being the twisted cowl (making that one with bulky wool for myself). A fantastic addition to my knitting library! HAPPY CRAFTING! :)
