Sweet Shawlettes is Superb! An Addition to Every Knitter's Library
Jean Moss has once again given us a book beyond the knitting designs. This collection of cowls, shawls and capelets inspires our imagination. The introduction is intriguing and gives us a taste for the feelings behind the designs. The variety of 25 patterns is testimony to Jean's expertise as a fibre designer and her ability to teach various techniques. There is something for everyone.
The book is divided into 4 sections, each preceded by lovely text to get you into the mood of the chapters entitled: Country, Couture, Folk and Vintage. Each design is described by Jean with some history and fashion options for wearing and adorning the shawlette in your own personal style.
The patterns are very clearly written with colour charts and schematics to make it easy to follow along. The photography is outstanding in its visual context giving the knitter a clear picture of the details of the garment against the backdrop of beautiful scenery.
A section on stitch techniques used in the designs is very helpful. Yarn information, needle and hook sizes, and common abbreviations are provided. A convenient Project Index with a photo of each design and page for instructions is listed before the detailed index.
A truly inspirational book that will give the reader pause in trying to decide which shawlette to knit first. A masterpiece to be sure.
