Stun­ning Stitches

Creative Knitting - - BOOK REVIEWS -

By Jen Lu­cas (Martin­gale, 96 pages, $24.99) Against a clean white back­ground, a beau­ti­ful lace shawl sweeps el­e­gantly over a shoul­der and down an arm. This is the cover of Stun­ning Shawls, and it gives an ex­cel­lent idea of what is in­side the book. You’ll find 21 easy to in­ter­me­di­ate shawls, scarves and cowls de­signed in a va­ri­ety of stitch pat­terns. White back­grounds and min­i­mal styling on the mod­els al­low the de­signs to shine while at the same time demon­strat­ing how to wear each type of neck­wear. Charts ac­com­pany the text in­struc­tions, along with tips on how to make each de­sign your own. In a par­tic­u­larly nice ges­ture, au­thor Jen Lu­cas cred­its the sam­ple knit­ters who made each ac­ces­sory. With Stun­ning Shawls, you can judge a book by its cover!
