Jean is known worldwide for her distinctive couture knits. Author of many successful books including Designer Knits, Sculptured Knits, Couture Knits and, most recently Sweet Shawlettes, she has designed for Rowan Yarns, Araucania and Artesano, as well as many international fashion houses such as Ralph Lauren, Laura Ashley and Benetton.

Her innovative combinations of intricate textures, striking colourways and sophisticated styling have been widely influential. Her designs appear regularly in Vogue Knitting, The Knitter and Rowan Magazine.

Passionate about good design, she believes it should be available to all, not just the few who can afford to buy couture. Spreading the word, she teaches knit design and technique workshops in the UK, Europe and North America.

Travel is a passion and Jean likes nothing better than to connect with kindred spirits and share skills. She's an ardent maker of stitches, clothes, food, music and gardens. Together with partner Philip Mercer, she hosts her own knitters' tours, mainly in the UK, but Morocco and Ireland have been recent destinations, with Greece and France as future possibilities.

Product Description

Review

From shawls and fichus to collars and cowls, this fun collection of 25 bite-sized knits has a project for every style and skill level. Veteran knitwear designer Moss ("In the Mood"), a regular contributor to "Vogue Knitting "and "Knitting" magazines, has created a fashionable collection of accent knits. Each of the book's four stylish sections--Country, Couture, Folk, and Vintage--contains knittable, wearable, and gift-able projects. Pieces like the festive Kardamili Shawlette or the leopard-print Kitty Capelet offer contemporary feel to classic pieces, while more unusual items like the delicate Vamp Boa, the sweet Garland Necklet, and the sassy Treasure Jabot offer lovely alternatives to traditional accessories. Several patterns feature colorwork, with additional forays into cabling, lace, and entrelac. Moss has provided plenty of useful diagrams and charts, and encourages knitters to alter or embellish each piece as they wish. The handy project index lays out thumbnails of every pattern in the book. This whimsical collection is perfect for the beginning or intermediate knitter looking to try out new techniques or use up her yarn stash. "--Publishers Weekly"

This is a beautiful book full of lovely treats. The patterns cover small projects for all tastes and abilities. The best analogy I can make is that it is like all those lovely Cook books that you read when on a diet. During a recent illness I couldn't knit but I could buy patterns and how I wish I had had this book to enchant and encourage me back to my needles. Jean never diappoints with her sweet or quirky or stylish patterns and this collection rivals her very best and will be used by me for years to come for presents , ideas and inspiraton.The patterns can be used for many different yarns and after checking tension will be great Stash busters. My favourites are;Twine Cowl,Vamp Boa,and Treasure Jabot. If you want to know what they are you will have to buy the book!!!

5 out of 5 for this reader folks!

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this pattern book. Sweet Shawlettes by Jean Moss is a great pattern book of 25 projects (some smaller than others) ranging from cowls, caplets, shawlettes and scarves. Very fashionable now a days I can see pairing many of these patterns with fancy dresses to plain ole jeans and cotton shirts. The book is sectioned off in four parts, Country, Couture, Folk and Vintage. Patterns are clearly written with charts displayed for easy interpretation.

I have to say my absolute fave pattern was the Evergreen scarf (love the fringe leaves) which I am going to whip up as a Xmas gift this year. a close second being the twisted cowl (making that one with bulky wool for myself).

A fantastic addition to my knitting library!

HAPPY CRAFTING! :)

Jean Moss has been a lovely knitwear designer and with that in mind, I didn't hesitate to buy her Sweet Shawlettes book. I can describe the designs as "nice" but they are boring. Not Jean's usual standard and certainly not a book I would recommend.

Despite the hideous ( just my opinion !) bulky thing on the cover I still got the book and am very glad I did.Its a bit left field a mixture of the really ugly and slightly nutty but inspirational.This pattern book is confined to cowls and a few shawls using a variety of wool weights some with a few embellishments ,these are my least favourite .I wont be knitting ,or wearing a shawl knitted in squares decorated with buttons ! but I still enjoy the fact that its included, they certainly aren't boring or pedestrian and as with all things sartorial and style related I suppose it depends on the wearer.The book starts with an introduction by the author, I always find it interesting to read where inspiration comes from for their designs,at the end there is the usual stitch directory and instruction section.With around 25 patterns ranging from small collar like scarves, cowls, larger cape style shawls through to traditionally shaped shawls there is lots to choose from. Some patterns feature fairisle designs,( the tartan shawl is my fave)cable work , textured stitches and a few, more detailed and complex lace stitches.This book would not be suitable for the beginner, some experience is required to knit these patterns, being able to knit in the round, do colourwork and follow charts for lace patterns is a necessity.
