BOOK REVIEW: VOGUE KNITTING MITTENS & GLOVES

Another gorgeous knitting book from the editors of Vogue Knitting magazine. You will find an incredible collection of over 40 patterns that were collected as best published designs from today leading designers. I am sure you will recognize many of them from the magazine issues over the years. Now they are all together in one book, so we do not have to look for another pattern for gloves or mittens. It will take us some time to get through all of these beautiful, stylish, different in knitting technique and usage points.
Editor in Chief of Vogue Knitting, Trisha Malcolm says: "Fun and funky fingerless mitts are a perfect first project... Many of the projects knit up quickly and with very little yarn..."















In summary: A treasure for knitting a special gift while not getting bored. Each designer offers a different technique. Charts are given and instructions are wonderful. Projects vary from a cutting-edge wristlets and funky fingerless mitts to some classics using Fair Isle, cables, and lace. There are even a few coordinating hats and scarves thrown in.
