    • "Some lovely ideas and patterns. A variety of techniques are included: cables, intarsia, lace, color blocking, even crochet (though it seems somewhat out of place). There is something for almost every wearer and knitter, whether your tastes run to large blocks of jewel tones, unusual capelets, or Estonian shawls."

    • This book has beautiful patterns in it - very inspiring, but probably not the best place to start for a new knitter. I love the scarf that uses the feather and fan pattern, and the sleeves+turtleneck pullover amazing. Someday

    • Some really neat scarves and a rather large section for information on creating your own scarf patterns with lots of instructions for grafting, various cast ons, etc. A good range of projects too - some look monstrously complicated (and far outside my ability), some are very complicated but might be something to aspire to, and many are beginner level or close to it. Also, there are crochet and knitting projects, and information on using crochet to border and attach, etc.What follows is not so mu [...]

    • Honestly, I've been picking at this book off and on for about two years, so saying I finished this today is a little misleading. I'm now making my third Lady Eleanor entrelac stole. That pattern alone is worth the price of the book. It's gorgeous, and if you use a ombre yarn, it looks really complicated and kind of impressive even though it's a pretty simple pattern, which I think is the sign of really well-planned piece of knitting. Another excellent aspect of this one is the appendix, which gi [...]

    • The pictures were horrible, if you are a picture person like me don't bother. Either they did a really bad job taking the pictures, or the did a good job and then tried to be artsy and blurred sections of them. Sometimes blurring the projects themselves which defeats the purpose. I want to see it to see if my work is looking even close. Also the way they laid out pictures in the book is they often had a small picture at the beginning of the instructions with a larger picture at the end, which us [...]

    • Mostly knit; I count only 4 crochet. Almost too innovative for its own good. The artsy photos often blur the knitting. Insufficient photos of what the scarf actually looks like. Several could use a drawing of the shape of the thing. Many too complex for me to figure out, especially Color on Color and Not-So-Plain Geometric Scarf, both of which could have used more photos.There's no mention of skill level needed for these projects. Some look doable by me, many do not. Some look like goals for the [...]

    • Lovely scarf patterns. However I have the same quibble with this book that I have with so many others -- the yarns used, in many cases, are no longer available. I am not yet a skillful-enough knitter to feel confident experimenting with other yarns than the ones used in the patterns here. There is an especially beautiful entralac stole in the book that I am eager to make. So if you decide to knit or crochet something from this lovely book, be prepared to have to make some substitutions.

    • I found this book rather inspirational. I really liked how they took such an ordinary thing as a scarf and spruced it up into something imaginative and remarkable. I saw several patterns that I flagged in my mind to knit later. I would recommend this book, even if only to browse through and get all sort of knitterly inspirations.*Taken from my book reviews blog: reviewsatmse/2008

    • I made the Lady Eleanor Stole from this book with Noro Silk Garden. I’m a slow knitter but fell so much in love with the ease and visible progress of this pattern that I finished it in less than three weeks (which is unheard of for me). I love it! And get so many compliments every time I wear it—I love the positive reinforcement! There were a few other lovely patterns in the book but none that completely caught my fancy. I sold my copy on eBay after finishing Lady E.

    • Need holiday gifts for men, women and children?Well this book if filled with tons of great ideas for scarf knitted gifts.Most need 200-400 grams of yarn, and there are some left over yarn ideas to use in some Fair-Isle style decoration on the scarfs.I'm still a big fan of Color Style in this series which is still my favorite.152 pages and bought new3 stars

    • Scarves are many a knitter's crack. I can't seem to stop making them. They are generally fairly mindless, let you try out a whole bunch of new techniques and don't require that you worry about fit and gauge and all sorts of other worrysome things bigger projects require.Great book that has a lot of really cute designs I would actually wear or give to my friends to wear. So, friends, if you get a scarf for Christmas, this book is the reason why.

    • There are some really nice-looking, drool-worthy scarves in this book. At the time I read it I wasn't as well-versed in crochet as I an now, and knew virtually nothing about knitting. I liked the look of the knitted scarves more than the crocheted ones, and I think there were far more knitted patterns.

    • I bought really pretty lace yarn (Rowan Kidsilk Haze) for my mother and I with the aim of making us scarves of some sort. I was browsing patterns only to have my mother say that she doesn't like lacy open scarves, she like solid ones. Sigh. So now I'm looking for a pattern where I can hold the lace yarn with another yarn to make her a solid scarf. Argh.

    • Very lovely and intricate patterns. It actually made me think that knitting a scarf might be interesting. However, many of the patterns also look time consuming, so I don't know when I'll get the chance to try them! The instructions and charts are clear, and there is a very helpful "technique" section in the back. A worthwhile addition to a knitter's library.

    • The scarves and shawls in this book are simply gorgeous. I am actually working on one right now and it is deceptively simple. I want to learn to crochet just to make some of the other scarves in the book. There are some great beginner patterns as well as the advanced patterns. I want to make just about all of them!

    • This is a great book, not only does it give you patterns you can follow, it empowers you to make up your own scarf patterns.I also love the idea of the sideways scarf pattern by Kristin Nicholas - which for me has reinvented scarf knitting!!!!!It has a lovely range of styles and also ease of knitting.

    • This book contains an abundance of unique scarves that are really fun to make. What I really enjoyed about this book, in comparison to other books on scarves, is that the patterns focus less on novelty yarn (e.g fun fur), and more on the pattern itself and different stitches, creating pieces that stand out in a good way! I had a lot of fun making the rose scarf.

    • I used to think of scarves as something too simple to bother with - boring garter stitch and using up oddments of wool, or something for beginners to practise on. I saw scarves made from this book popping up all over the blog-o-sphere and rapidly changed my way of thinking.My favourite is Midwest Moonlight but I need to re-make it as my choice of yarn did not give the right effect.

    • Pro: A nice variety of patterns, from traditional to experimental. I plan to eventually make five of these scarves.Con: Part of almost every large photo of completed scarves is "artistically" fuzzy on the lower half. One photo is even partially obscured by reflections from the window through which it was shot! I prefer clean, crisp, and fully visible photographs in knitting books.

    • I very much enjoy this series of knitting books. There are actually more patterns that I want to knit from here than there were in Lace Style. I can't believe it!Lots of wearable things, not just arty-I-knit-this-because-I-could stuff.

    • I'm giving this 2 stars instead of 1 because I think the knitted items are beautiful. But for a crocheter, this would be a waste of money. 3 patterns in the whole book! And only one of those three were something I hadn't seen before. A disappointment for any crocheter IMHO.

    • Very nice selection of scarves et al. Of course knitting dominates, but there are 3 or 4 crochet projects that are very nice too. I like that some incorporate beads and they are pretty diverse in their skills and yarns.

    • If you are looking for a scarf to knit this is the book for you. There are many different styles of scarves even shawls that can be used as a scarf. There are easy to difficult patterns.A great resource to have!

    • I tend not to knit scarves unless I *have* to because it is so cliched, and I did my fill of them when I was learning to knit. But some of the patterns in this book really inspired me, and I actually find that i want to dive into some scarves now.

    • I told myself I wasn't going to knit any more scarves, and then I found this book. I absolutely love this book. Its a great way to learn new techniques without having to worry about the dimensions too much.

    • Lots of interesting ideas for all kinds of scarves. Some of them look like they'd take years and a degree in construction to make. Others are straightforward with complicated patterns or interesting yarn or a new way of shaping. Good reference.

    • Great book on scarf knittingEasy to understand patterns with helpfully explained technique. A few scarves that are nice for men too. A lot of unique patterns as well

    • One of the better scarf books on the market, it doesn't rely on novelty yarns or celebrity designers but provides a variety of patterns that need different techniques.
