100 quick and easy winter knits from best-selling author and knitting designer Monica Russel.
This gorgeous book brings together 100 of the best winter knits from best-selling author and knitting designer Monica Russel. Previously published in the 20 to Make series, these fabulous designs are quick and easy to make, and include scarves, wrist warmers, hats, boot cuffs, head bands and snoods. With designs for men, women and children in a range of colours and styles, there is something for everyone in this valuable knitting resource.
Compiled from Russel’s (100 Little Knitted Gifts to Make, 2016) contributions to the Twenty to Make series, these 100 patterns for winter accessories will satisfy beginning and experienced knitters alike. The simpler patterns include striped or lace scarves and several basic hats. Though they are all simply shaped, some of the wrist-warmer and boot-cuff patterns will require familiarity with intarsia techniques. But there are also intarsia patterns that will challenge, but not frustrate, those looking to elevate their beginning knitting game; the same is true for all of the cable patterns. All pattern abbreviations are explained, and all yarn weights are given in grams, yards, and meters. Directions for gage are given where necessary, but no finished sizes are listed. Knitters will find the variety of patterns inspiring, and most will not be able to resist making pig boot cuffs for their wellies. The range of style and skill level represented in these patterns for scarves, wrist warmers, headbands, hats, boot cuffs, and snoods make this a solid choice for all public library craft collections. — Susan Maguire
