Vogue Knitting Scarves (Vogue Knitting on the Go) Reviews
i adore the conduct of colour and got inspired from this book-some of the vogue in it i have been inspired by
I know I started out knitting simple scarves as a kid, but moved on to bigger knitting challenges. But the projects in this book made me excited to make scarves again. I love the Knitting on the Go series--they're really cute books, and are the perfect size to take with you. (I take it on my commute.) And the scarves especially make great gifts for basically everyone.
As a beginning knitter, I wanted to make things that were fairly simple but would make nice gifts... what would work better than scarves! This book has a nice variety of patterns from different sources, so the designs are all fresh, some dressy, some sporty, some delicate and some chunky... not just variations on a theme. Each pattern is rated either 'very easy', 'intermediate', 'experienced', or 'expert'. There are several patterns in each range, and even the 'very easy' are attractive and don't look like cop-outs!There is some helpful how-to information at the beginning of the book, but an absolute beginner would need to learn at least the bare basics before starting any of the projects in this book.The book is small and light, so I can stick it in my purse to go shopping for yarn, or in my knitting tote bag so I have the pattern handy.The only drawback to this book is the binding.... the pages fall out too easily and I'm going to end up having a book held together by tape before long.I look forward to getting more of these great little books!
I was amazed at all the variety packed into this little book! Scarves make fabulous gifts, and you'll find something here for everyone on your list. The designs are unique, whether it's the simplest scarf, or the most complicated shawl.While it's true that some of the patterns call for high-end yarns, don't let that stop you from buying this book; scarves are definitely good for experimenting with different yarns. Even size and gauge aren't critical, so feel free to substitute yarns, as I have done with much success. That said, scarves don't take that much yarn, and it's worth a little extra money to make one of the knock-out scarves calling for hand-dyed yarns.The patterns range from simple stitches to intricate colorwork, and everything in between. As a result, you'll find quick-knit gift items, as well as good things to try when you're finally ready to tackle intarsia or fair isle. It's also not just scarves - there's a gorgeous intarsia shawl, and a lace wrap, too. Finishing includes fringes, pom-poms, and even rose quartz beads!With the great variety and possibilities for experimentation, this book is a great value for the money.
VOGUE SCARVES is a complementary volume to the larger VOGUE basic knitting book. I bought the scarves book because I need inspiration. As I struggle to master basic knitting techniques, I like to think ahead to what might be possible if I persevere. This little book includes some beautiful examples of what might be possible if my fingers ever become un-numb from the work I've been doing.Some of the Vogue scarf designs depend on fancy stitches, some on appliques, some on more than one color, some on a mix of the above. Many of the scarves include basic stitches I am already beginning to master. A good example of a relatively simple design is the `Chevron' scarf, which involves the garter stitch, knitting on a biased pattern by increasing stitches at each row, and using more than one color.Seems as though knitting like advanced math involves calculations built up from addition and subtraction (`advanced' knitting techniques reduce to knitting and purling--apparently the reverse of each other). The most important ingredient in becoming a proficient advanced knitter is to master the basics. This book is for those capable of persevering who are ready to tackle more knitting and purling.
