By Jackie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is packed with patterns I'd like to make. I actually bought this for one pattern which is the 3D entrelac scarf which I was knitting when my daughter visited. She instantly asked if it was for her...... now I'm knitting another..lol.

5.0 out of 5 stars So many ideas 12 Jan 2014
By Brabant
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An excellent book. At first I thought, hey anyone can knit a scarf: who needs an expensive book. And then I looked inside and though, hmmm, not bad I'll give it a go. And when it arrived along with volume 1 I spent hours browsing, agonising, which of these oh so desirables shall I knit first? The piece de resistance just has to be the 3D Entrelac scarf by Kathryn Alexander - tricky but a way to polish up a little used skill and oh so to die for.

Anyone could use this book from first stage knitter to accomplished knitter. So many ideas and such clear instructions. The glossary at the back takes you through it all with clear illustrations. My only tiny gripe is again for the 3D Entrelac scarf, here the glossary refence is not so clear but once you get going, all becomes obvious.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary Book - Scarves, Cowls, Shawls, and Shawlettes 3 Sep 2013
By Bonnie Brody - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Ann Budd has edited and written a wonderful knitting book, Scarf Style 2. The book contains patterns by many well-known designers and some lesser-known ones. As she states in her introduction, this "is a book of scarves to knit and a book about knitting scarves." It contains 26 luscious patterns.

Some of my favorites are the Cottage Scarf, a classic cable design knit in worsted weight or two strands of fingering yarn held together designed by Jared Flood. This gives the knitter options. The Passing Through Shawl is knit in a light blue hue with worsted weight yarn and designed by Debbi Stone. It looks easy enough for the advanced beginner who knows some lace knitting. I love the Sea Spray Shawl in a deep purple. Designed by Angela Tong and knit with fingering weight yarn, it is lovely. It incorporates a four-row lace pattern making it accessible for the beginning knitter. Brioche Branches, designed by Nancy Marchant, is a two-color brioche pattern in a loden colorway. Each side has a different looking pattern. I think this is a project for the more advanced knitter. Star Palatine, a lacy shawl, takes my breath away by its beauty. It is designed by Galina Khmeleva and is knit diagonally and has star motifs in the center. It has a garter stitch foundation. The Tubular Fair Isle scarf is colorful and perfect for a cold winter day. Designed by Deborah Newton, it is knit with worsted weight alpaca so it should feel nice on anyone's neck. I love the Deep Shade Scarf designed by Jolene Treace. It is in a lovely green colorway and employs the Fibonacci numerical sequence. Nancy Bush's Ilme's Autumn Triangle is a golden cinnamon shawl knit with laceweight yarn. It incorporates Estonian knitting for which Ms. Bush is well-known. Alexis Winslow has designed Eufaula, an eternity scarf that can be worn as a loop or a cowl or even a hood. It is knit in a lovely shade of gold using worsted weight alpaca. The Airy Lace Scarf is worked in a double layer of garter stitch with a "channel closure at the end of one of the tails. Slip the pointed end through the channel and pull on it to adjust the fit." It is designed by Angela Tong and knit with laceweight, super fine yarn. The golden orange hue is bright and lovely.

There are many more patterns in this book that I have not mentioned that are lovely and wonderfully aesthetic. The book also contains a Design Notebook at the end which goes over specific patterns and provides additional instructions for their knitting and construction. This is much more than a scarf book. It contains scarves, cowls, shawls, and shawlettes . It is a book I would not want to be without in my knitting library.

As usual I asked myself these three questions:

Am I likely to knit the patterns in the book?

Are the patterns easy to read?

Is the book a good resource?

The answer to all three questions is a resounding 'yes'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great follow-up volume 4 Oct 2013
By BurmeseLover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is all I had hoped for: years ago, I bought the original scarf style, and used it to advance my knitting skills. It's still a go-to treasure. This new volume has more voluminous and extravagantly lovely scarves than the original; no more one-skein quickies, at least at first glance. Even so, I want to make them all. A real win.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best new book this year 9 Oct 2013
By nightknitter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I chose this rating because I immediately wanted to knit almost everything in the book. I buy almost every new book and am often disappointed, but not this time.

This book is as delightful as the previous books she has written. Her skill as a knitter and her attention to detail make this a great addition to my knitting book collection.
