If you knit, there are 21 shawls, scarves and cowls patterns in this book. I am not a great knitter but I can knit and purl. There are patterns that use only those stitches and then there are those that are a bit more advanced.

The color photos show off each pattern nicely and the written instructions include a chart if you would rather use that than a written pattern. Tips are set off in boxes.

If you are new to knitting, you might need to look up some of the abbreviations that are use. I know I don’t know what PM means but would guess that means Place Marker. To solve this problem, the author has a full page of abbreviations and what they mean.

There is a chart of yarn sizes as well as needle sizes, metric conversion and skill level and their meaning. If knitting is your skills, then this book gives you 21 ways to use that skill.
I am dazzled by Jen Lucas' designs! This book has beautiful projects for beginners and seasoned knitters alike. The lacy shawl on the cover - called Glarus - is at the top of my 'to knit' list because of its delicate look, open stitches, and versatility: you can complement an evening outfit or dress up any clothes with it.

The book presents seven sets of projects, each set with three different neck wear options and skill levels. Jen challenged herself to repeat some stitches in each set with worthwhile results. I love the pattern notes for they give an overall idea about the project or stitches used. It is also great to know which yarn was used in each project as sometimes I want to get the exact look as in the sample. The "Make it your own" call out boxes help us customize sizes to fit our needs. There is a section with Special Techniques for those of us who can use the extra help, as well as abbreviations and resources. So glad I got this book!
