A scarf is a great beginner project, but the wide variety of patterns in Just Scarves ensures that even the most seasoned crafter will create something new and exciting. With so many options for men and women’s styles, wearing (and making!) scarves will be a yearlong passion.
The first chapter in the book, “Easy Does It,” focuses on honing basic techniques. Once those are mastered, knitters are introduced to specialized styles such as cables, granny squares, lace, and shaping. Each of these is given a new spin with fresh patterns and beautiful colors. There are also wonderful chapters on “Reversible Scarves” that look great no matter which way they’re tied and “Fabulous Scarves” that can be worn like jewelry. The final chapter is dedicated to fun finishes, which will help crafters make sure each creation is as unique as possible.
With stylish full-color photography, a bold design, Lion Brand’s excellent reputation, and Nancy Thomas’s keen eye, Just Scarves promises to be a fun, fashionable collection of classic and contemporary patterns.
