5.0 out of 5 stars Great styles, great sizes, great stitch, great book!!, 16 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Knitting Brioche: The Essential Guide to the Brioche Stitch technique (Paperback)
The instructions for learning a different way of knitting are clear with good photos showing how to work various techniques, and a variety of different stitch patterns to try.
There are some wonderful styles including a capelet which, because the stitch completes a double sided fabric can be worn either side uppermost, also a "windmill jacket" which is worked from the back up to the top and down again - actually ending at the front. Different styles which although unusual are not weird, very wearable.
The garments (about 12 of them)range in size from 32" to 48" for most , some of the clearly outdoor style jumpers start at 38" and mens items go up to about 54".
What a refreshing change from the "slender persons only need apply" look of many knitting books. Yarns specified use USA terms but the guage (tension) will identify the yarn thickness required, and I'm looking forward to starting on the new (for me) way of knitting.
I shall start with a scarf because 1) I can get some practise 2) I can try out various stitches 3) I need one - it's cold outside 4) I daren't start on anything more complicated!
I'm very impressed with this book it's really good value, well worth more.
