SCARVES AND COWLS: 36 Quick and Stylish Knits

FIONA GOBLE    Book Number: 89349    Product format: Paperback

Fashion meets function with this colourful selection of scarves and cowls. Fiona Goble has designed 36 imaginative and appealing pieces to keep you warm and stylish through accessories that are quick and easy to make. This guide offers scarves, cowls and headbands for both adults and kids, from a tweedy keyhole or pompom scarf to a twist headband, fine lace-knit capelet and hooded scarf with a Fair Isle border. As if from the pages of a magazine, the styles are modelled with bright outfits for you to find inspiration for the knits before embarking on the crafting, whether that is looking at how to match a fur collar with a dress or interact with a scarf which has ended in the funky shape of a snakehead - guaranteed to capture the imagination of any child wearing it. The book is split into three sections: 'Knits', 'Patterns' and 'Techniques.' Each pattern includes a concise introduction, details on how to make separate parts and join them as well as suggestions on yarn, needles, gauge and measurements. Learn about the patchwork scarf which is made up from crochet granny squares through an easy technique for those who have a case of 'crochet-phobia' and knit your college or team colours into a stripy scarf to be worn on a reunion or match day. Brighten up a child's wardrobe with a bandana cowl, an urban take on cowboy chic with a subtle spot pattern or a moustache cowl, so the wearer can keep warm and sport the coolest facial hair in wool. This companion is brilliant for beginners as well as faithful knitters with the Technique section at the back offering perfect tips on how to hold needles and yarn, the best way to make a slip knot, casting on through the cable method and staple parts of knitting projects such as cables (groups of stitches), crochet techniques and mattress stitches - all demonstrated with clear and colourful diagrams for the visual learner. Never be cold or off-trend again with this fantastic guide to knitting and styling scarves and cowls. Paperback, colour images, 7.3" x 9.5", 128pp.
