4 conventional scarf shapes, one capelet, two cowl styles, two skinnies, one lace, one loose cable, one wavy, one stripey, one in strands and one crossover neckwarmer.
Yarns vary in thickness, it doesn't really matter if you can't use exactly the same yarn as tension is given and the "0" (fine laceweight yarn) to "5" bulky indicator is shown, so you can see what's needed. Absolute sizing isn't crucial for anything in here.
All are wearable and most are easy to make. The one using Rowan Kidsilk which is a pricey yarn only uses one ball so ends up being bearable. However the stranded one uses 4 balls of Noro Iro which is a chunky yarn and not cheap so some scarves cost a lot more than others. The green one on the cover uses chunky weight wool and alpaca, it says it takes 5 oz and for something measuring about 12" x 8" that's pretty extraordinary. The wool and angora scarf (4 balls needed) has gaps along its length, allowing it to be pulled through and looks cosy and comfortable. All in all, not a bad mix. The book doesn't cost a fortune, and neither will the scarves if other brands/yarn types are substituted.
Instructions are fine, clear and easy to follow.

TOP 50 REVIEWERon 21 January 2011
14 great to knit, great to wear scarves. Pretty little neckwarmers, long scarves, fringed scarves and one small capelet as well as one design for men. Unusual patterns - some thought has gone into the design. Should be a hit. UK knitters please note, these are American yarns, you will probably need to substitute yarn.

It does what it says - well illustrated and easy to understand so appeals to new and experienced knitters alike.
The price is reasonable.

bought as a present for a friend who has begun to fake an interest knitting again after many years of packing her needles away. Now she can show her granddaughter just as she was shown by her grandmother. This way knitting as a hobby will never die out.
