Tips are provided for embellishing each project with different fabrics, edgings, and stitching patterns, making personalization easy, even for novices. Beautiful photographs and color illustrations detailing how to create each piece, as well as contemporary designs and small, quick projects make this guide a must-have for the gift-giving knitter.

Types of patterns: Womens mostly accessories and a few garments, some of the scarves are pretty unisex.Number of Patterns: 21 in total - Hat(5); Handbag (3); Mittens (1); Wrap (3); Cushion (1); Tabard (1); Scarf (3); Purse (2); Fingerless mitts (1); Cardigan (1)Split of patterns: WomensSize Range:33.5-47" (96.5-119.5cm) for the tabard; 34-45" (86.5-114.5cm) for the cardigan. Everything else is one size.Colour/Black & White: colour throughoutSchematics: Yes for the two garments (cardigan and Tabard)Target Audience: Intermediate with some stuff that a beginner wouldn't be too unhappy trying.How to knit guide: Short onePretty Classical stuff.Comments: This is divided into a few sections- Eclectic and Quirky; Textured and Modern; Pretty and Feminine and Traditional and Folk. Some of it is quite pretty and it is the kind of thing that someone more into girly stuff would like. Honestly I see about three patterns I like but nothing in this made me want to reach for my needles.I've seen some of the garments in person and they are cute but not me, I'm not a person for handbags, I'm a shoulder bag person and I'm weaning myself off looking at neck fastening cardigans because they drive me crazy. One of the things I really did like about the book was the way some of the items were knit in different yarns, smooth and fluffy so you could see the way a different yarn could change the look. Also some of the embroidery and embelishment was interesting. So for me it was a glance through and get inspiration book. The one garment I was interested in has been reproduced in a magazine I get, so I have it already.Buy/Borrow: Borrow to see what's in it and if you're really attracted buy. This is the kind of book that you either love or feel a bit meh about.read more

Contains knitting patterns for the kinds of knit accessories you'd find in boutiques, all designed with Louisa Harding yarn. The detailed, feminine patterns, most titled with retro women's names, sometimes seem a little precious. But who wouldn't love a pair of picot-edged, mohair, fingerless mittens to knit with?read more
