Yes! Beauty, artistry, and challeging designs!, November 29, 2003 By abt1950 "abt1950" (usa)
This review is from: Shawls and Scarves: The Best of Knitter's Magazine (Best of Knitter's Magazine series) (Paperback) This
book is great! All these wonderful patterns from old issues of Knitters magazine have been reprinted together in a more durable
format. My copies of the original magazines are dog-eared and not always easy to find, so this book has a definite place on my
knitting bookshelf. If you're new to knitting shawls, this book is a great introduction. The patterns represent a wide variety of
traditional and more modern styles. As with most pieces from Knitters, the designs are sophisticated and often challenging.
Techniques are well-explained and will give you the background needed to move beyond pre-fab patterns to design your own.
However, this doesn't mean that the book is only for expert knitters. I'm an intermediate knitter, but I made my first Faroese
shawl from a pattern included here. It was a technical stretch at first, but not undoable. The result was one of the best, most
wearable, and most satisfying pieces of knitting I've done. I'm now starting my second...

One of my favorites, February 2, 2004 By A. Reader (Boise, Idaho United States)
This review is from: Shawls and Scarves: The Best of Knitter's Magazine (Best of Knitter's Magazine series) (Paperback) I
originally checked this book out from the local library and found that I would have to own my own copy. There are a few patterns
that would be suitable for beginners, but I would definitely pay attention to the skill level rating on each pattern. My only
complaint would be that the terms "laceweight" and "fingering" seem to have been used without discretion. While lace knitting is
generally very forgiving in terms of gauge, it is frustrating to know that the "laceweight" yarn you purchased is not even close to
the "laceweight" yarn that was used in the pattern. Patterns are included for round, triangular, faroese, shetland, and rectangular
shawls. The patterns include both written instructions as well as charts to accommodate any preference. Color pictures are
provided for each pattern, as well as each variation of pattern. Yarns range from mohair to cotton, and from sport weight to
laceweight. A 4-page "Knitter's School" in the back of the book provides instructions for...

An eagerly-awaited book!!!, July 27, 1999 By A Customer
This review is from: Shawls and Scarves: The Best of Knitter's Magazine (Best of Knitter's Magazine series) (Paperback) This
book contains patterns for shawls and scarves from previous issues of Knitter's magazine. With so many issues of Knitter's
magazine out of print, and selling for fantastic prices (one issue sold for almost $50 on Ebay) this is a most welcome book. If
you like shawls and knitting you will enjoy this book.
