Review quote

I'm not big on ponchos or capelets, but thankfully this book has a good mix of designs. I like the lighter weight designs the best - the cashmere wrap (almost a blanket) and the lacy Shetland Triangle and Wrapped in Traditions design. I quite like the front cover design too. However, some of these designs are far too chunky and others look like cut off sweaters without arms. The designers have not gone for the obvious wrap, as in stole of shawl, but branched out into a whole new board game, and I like that - there are plenty of shawl knitting patterns elsewhere. I would not say that these designs are particularly feminine and with most knitting books - see before you buy to make sure you want to knit more than one.-KarenPlatt.co.ukshow more
