3.0 out of 5 stars Lovely patterns but... 9 Feb 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The yarns required are so difficult to get hold of in the UK!

The patterns are very well explained (and adapted for UK readers) and are generally quite simple. Although there are some very easy patterns (just rows of garter stitch using different yarns), the majority of the book is pitched at about advanced beginner level. There are some basic cables but that's about as complicated as it gets.

As the patterns are so straightforward it's the yarns that make the finished items so special, and a lot of them you just can't get in the UK. You need a decent knowledge of yarns to try and source substitutes, but even then they simply may not exist over here (four months on and I'm still trying to source metallic red 4-ply!).

Lovely patterns, but without being able to locate the required yarns they can't be brought to life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great variety of designs 6 May 2012
By Mrs. F. Huxley VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The designs range from simple and suitable for a beginner to advanced intermediate with beaded knitting. The designs use US yarns which are not readilty available here in the UK but for most of the yarns can be substituted as exact tension is not critical with scarves and wraps.The first section of the book has description of the differences between types of scarves and shawls and some basic knitting instructions. The next chapter is designs using garter stitch where the yarn choosen makes the scarf/shawl unique. The next chapter introduces designs with knit/purl combinations and then some designs with cables. Aftern that there is several designs using lace knitting followed by beaded knitting. The final set of designs uses fringes, beaded finges and i-cord edgings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of Ponchos! 22 Sep 2005
By True Review - Published on
While some reviewers have said there are only "three" poncho projects in the entire book, that statement is simply not accurate. There are three projects with "poncho" in the project name, plus five other projects with instructions for how to create a "Poncho Variation" so you can make either the main shawl/wrap/scarf or the poncho variation of that project (pages 33, 51, 62, 104, 111). Further, pages 9-10 provide a comprehensive overview, complete with illustrations, of how to create four different types of ponchos simply by starting with knitted rectangles or triangles ("Anatomy of a Poncho"), followed by another section specifically instructing readers on "Making Scarves into Ponchos." It is unfair to make statements about the lack of poncho projects in this book when clearly some reviewers have not looked beyond the Table of Contents. A savvy knitter, using author Jane Davis' thorough instructions, can convert all 44 of the projects in this book into ponchos! And let's not forget the 150+ full-color photos and 75 how-to charts/illustrations to enhance anyone's ability to create anything from easy novelty yarn projects or knit and purl projects to cables and lace to beaded or embroidered pieces. There's something here--ponchos, wraps and scarves--for everyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars worthwhile purchase 17 Jun 2005
By M. Poller - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Jane Davis has written several fine books on beading and knitting and she doesn't disappoint with her newest one. Lots of beaded projects but also beginner projects and good explanations. There are only 3 ponchos and mainly the patterns are for scarves or wraps. Lots of techniques: cables, lace, etc. Everything is well explained and the book is beautifully produced with 150 color photos and 75 charts and illustrations for over 40 items. Each item lists the original yarn used and also uses the number guide to type of yarn weight and indicates the skill level for the project.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even more 15 Dec 2005
By Linda Pagliuco - Published on
This is the latest in my collection of pattern books, just published in 2005. I bought this volume because of the new ideas it contains. Ways of incorporating beadwork, unusual edgings, use of yarns such as roving - these designs go beyond the ubiquitous "fun fur" stuff and offers a number of new looks and styles. Fun, inventive, not at all boring or routine.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but beware of incorrect cast on sts 20 Nov 2007
By Joyce Edwards - Published on
I love the projects in this book HOWEVER, BEWARE,there are a number of patterns that do not have the correct number of cast on stitches. For example on page 75 the white lace scarf says cast on 16 stitches but then the first row has 18 stitches. Similarly on page 79 the winter mountains scarf says cast on 36 stitches but there are at least 38 sts in the first row instructions or if you use the pattern diagram the first row includes 40 sts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, Easy, Low-Stress, High-Fashion Projects 23 April 2006
By Cable Car Belle - Published on
Some days I'm in the mood to knit "for the fun of it" instead of for the challenge. This book is full of projects that are easy, fun and yet still fulfilling.

The only criticism I have is that there are errors (typos) in the instructions, that are annoying and could confuse beginners. For example, one pattern gives instructions for Row 1, then Row 2, then Row 4 - which should actually be row 3. Another pattern gives an incorrect stitch count within the first few lines.

Also, there is no guage info - apparently because these items don't really need to fit. Still, if your guage is off, you may need more or less yarn. To obtain the same results as the author with the exact same yarn, I have had to adjust the needs size significantly (from size 11 to size 17).

Even with all that - I do like the book.
