A section on letters and numerals is invaluable for personalizing your knitting, and there is also a chapter featuring original motifs. The project section includes blankets and throws, scarves and shawls, bags, hats and gloves, and the cutest knitted toys. If you need to refresh your knitting skills, the basic techniques chapter will show you how to cast on and off, how to achieve the correct tension and gauge, how to hold your needles, and which yarn to choose.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of ideas 16 Nov 2010
This book is very attractively presented and has lots of good ideas, from easy to challenging. There are lots of 'square' patterns which could be used for blankets, for example, but could also be adapted for other projects.
The picture motifs mostly have a pattern chart and a picture of it once knitted which was quite helpful.
I am a fairly experienced knitter but there is a 'how to knit' section at the back for complete beginners.
The one thing I found frustrating was that different sections of the book (eg the alphabet patterns and the patterns for a child's building block) used squares of different sizes so it wasn't as easy to mix and match them as it might have been. However it wasn't too hard to adapt the patterns.
Overall I'm very pleased with it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Full of mistakes 18 Dec 2011
This book was not a good buy unfortunately - despite looking pretty, the book is full of mistakes in the patterns. As a book aimed at novices this is not satisfactory. The author has a blog and is contactable, however did not respond to my email asking about a mistake. Had she got back to me with a 'fix' for the mistake I would not be leaving this review.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty blocks, projects not so good 3 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There are lots of pretty designs in here with sections for blocks featuring intarsia, lace, cables and fair isle. I am quite disappointed in the projects though because the instructions for them are very poor and I doubt I'll make any of them. I would have liked more ideas for ways to actually use the squares.

By djlk
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a lovely collection of inspirational fun and modern projects and would be ideal for using up those accumulated remnants of yarn. The designs and easy instructions are so clearly displayed that as I turned each page I felt compelled to get knitting . . . but which one first?
