A lovely simple book with good illustration and instructions, although in American you can work out abbreviations in front of book. Quite a few good Nordic patterns.

Having memories of the Nordic-patterned socks from my childhood I was delighted to find this modern collection of patterns that enable me to pass my delight (and some lovely socks) on to my granddaughter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick but attractive 28 Nov 2010
By ChiReader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover-spiral
A perfect book for someone (like me) pretty new to stranded knitting. The patterns are easy, but still attractive. I've been looking for a simple cabled mitten pattern and the one in here matches the one I've had in my head, but have previously been unable to find. The colorwork charts are easy to read and the directions straightforward. A great book for newish knitters, or anyone looking to make a quick gift.

4.0 out of 5 stars Attractive Knitted Gifts (Matching Hats, Mittens, Socks, Ankle Warmers) for Adult Women 14 Nov 2010
By Lynne E. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover-spiral|Verified Purchase
Knitting books that have "Easy", "Simple", or "Quick" in the title are often disappointing, but this book is a delightful exception. It has clear instructions for 15 hats (including caps, bonnets, and berets), 11 mittens (some can be knitted as gloves), 7 socks (including a spiral sock), wrist warmers, and ankle warmers. The patterns are all written for only one size (adult woman: average hat size 22", hand width 3.75", leg width 4.25").

Most of the hat designs are accompanied by designs for either matching mittens or socks, and a few (Baggy, Stars, Spruce, and Flaps) have designs for both matching mittens and socks. The patterns for heel-less spiral socks, a hat with earflaps, and ankle warmers are nice bonuses.

I was particularly intrigued by the ankle warmers ("What do you do when your feet are cold and your shoes are too tight for wool socks?"), which I hadn't seen before. An ankle warmer is a heel-less, foot-less sock cuff, with an attached strap that goes around the arch of the foot to hold the "sock top" in place. Ankle warmers appear to be fairly simple to knit, and the author rates them as an "easy" project. The ankle warmer pattern would be easy to adjust to fit any size of person.

The book has an interior spiral binding, which is popular with many knitters because the pages lie flat. Check the "Look Inside" feature on the product description page for complete instructions for knitting the Baggy, Scraps, Spruce, and Cables hats, and for a photo of the earflap hat (on the Table of Contents page). This book is a great gift-knitting book, as long as you only need patterns for adult women. It would rate 5 rather than 4 stars if the author had included instructions for resizing the patterns to fit a wider range of persons.
