From shawls and fichus to collars and cowls, this fun collection
of 25 bite-sized knits has a project for every style and skill
level. Veteran knitwear designer Moss ("In the Mood"), a regular
contributor to "Vogue Knitting "and "Knitting" magazines, has
created a fashionable collection of accent knits. Each of the
book''s four stylish sections--Country, Couture, Folk, and
Vintage--contains knittable, wearable, and gift-able projects.
Pieces like the festive Kardamili Shawlette or the leopard-print
Kitty Capelet offer contemporary feel to classic pieces, while more
unusual items like the delicate Vamp Boa, the sweet Garland
Necklet, and the sassy Treasure Jabot offer lovely alternatives to
traditional accessories. Several patterns feature colorwork, with
additional forays into cabling, lace, and entrelac. Moss has
provided plenty of useful diagrams and charts, and encourages
knitters to alter or embellish each piece as they wish. The handy
project index lays out thumbnails of every pattern in the book.
This whimsical collection is perfect for the beginning or
intermediate knitter looking to try out new techniques or use up
her yarn stash. "--Publishers Weekly"
