Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 10 October 2012
I all ready own the French Girl Knits book and love it, so when I saw that there was a new one due I couldn't wait to buy mine. Yet again Kristeen Griffin-Grimes has brought us a lots of great, stylish designs which will make us pick up our knitting needles and start knitting immediately.

There are some great projects in this book, both for the beginner and the more experienced knitter. There are 6 great hat patterns, I've all ready knit Sapphire which knit up really quickly and is a really unusual beanie style french revolutionary hat. There are also 2 sock patterns, 2 very different wrist warmer knits (one lacy and one in a french weave style), you also get some very stylish ballet style pump/slippers to knit and finally there 4 shrug patterns again lacy as well as chunkier styles and finally there is a really nice cowl to knit.

The photographs are good, with close ups of key details, there is a glossary at the back as well as all of the techniques you will need. The yarns used in the patterns are designer but I have used a cheaper yarn, looking at the needle gauge and thickness of wool to help me decide on what wool to buy. Of course, because these are accessories using the more expensive wool is an option as you don't need to buy as much.

Great knitting book, excellent, love the Interweave books.
