The biggest and best knitting pattern collection yet from FiberFrau includes scarves, a sparkling cowl collar, and fingerless mittens. Color work and pattern stitches will offer interesting projects for advanced beginners and intermediate knitters, while most projects are simple enough for a confident beginner. Every project was inspired by a book, so fans of the Hunger Games, Divergent, or Lord of the Rings may enjoy some literary knitting.
This is a book of patterns for projects, not a tutorial on how to knit, so complete beginners will need to first learn to execute knit and purl stitches, cast on and bind off. Some of the projects, including Gandalf's Mitts and the Fibonacci Scarf, require only those skills.
