A pattern, like a small map, shows you how to get from point A to point B. The beginning of the pattern, with information about materials, size, and gauge, provides tips that help you get ready for your trip. The instructions lead you out of your garage, down the driveway, and onto the highway; the finishing details take you from your final exit into the parking lot of your destination. With any luck, you won’t get lost along the way.

  1. Rated 4 out of 5


    My favorite piece in the book is the first essay entitled, “Full Circle,” in which Druchunas compares the cycle of a woman’s life to the act of knitting a circular shawl.

    Druchunas and Coleman, joined by a few other contributors, travel around the world, they talk with people, they share stories and forgotten bits of history, they dissect vintage knitted pieces and provide fresh new patterns. In short, they provide perfect summer reading material.
