Library Journal
In this collection of 24 knitwear patterns from the editors of Interweave Knits magazine, a wrap is defined as "more than a scarf but less than a coat" and includes such garments as shawls, ponchos, and capelets. These works by 18 designers, both well known (e.g., Deborah Newton) and newer (e.g., Teva Durham), feature stranded color knitting, intarsia, aran, and lace work, among other construction techniques. In keeping with the Interweave Knits philosophy that if you want it you can knit it, the designs are not graded for difficulty but are suitable for the intermediate and advanced knitter. A bonus is the mini workshop on designing your own wraps. Highly recommended. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
