Synopsis

Scarf Style A Beginner's Guide to Kniting Scarves by Marie Connolly

What was your first knitting project? The scarf is where many of us start and often return. Scarves never lose their appeal. You can cast on with your favourite yarn and needles and create something beautiful. This book contains 25 up-to-the-minute patterns for all levels of knitting ability starting with the simple rectangle scarf and moving on to a range of exciting creations - fun , funky or simply warm and snug! The author uses wonderful combinations of materials and techniques: a simple lace scarf mixes a traditional lace pattern with an unconventional choice of a chunky yarn. A time-honoured fair isle pattern gets a twist (quite literally!) that turns it into an infinite loop. And a chunky cable knit is made ultra feminine by adding eyelets and ribbons. For the beginner knitter, the book uses basic stitches paired with beautiful yarns to create gorgeous scarves. For the more advanced knitter, readers can get into lace patterning, fair isle knitting, and embroidered embellishments. And if you still want more, you can even learn to design your own scarf.
