Scarf Style

Scarf Style Innovative to Traditional, 31 Inspirational Styles to Knit and Crochet by Pam Allen, Editor of Interweave Knits Expand your idea of what a scarf can be! This collection of 31 elegant, whimsical, and ingenious scarves taps the expertise of over twenty-five knitwear designers who offer new ways to think about this most basic of garments. Expect to be surprised: a timeless scarf that uses cables and stitch patterns, a "scarf" that functions as a pair of portable sleeves with a turtleneck, a delicate triangular shawl based on traditional Estonian lace patterns, and a deconstructed striped scarf held together with brightly colored bobbles. Although each scarf is an individual interpretation by such prominent designers as Kathryn Alexander, Debbie Bliss, Nancy Bush, Lily Chin, Nicky Epstein, Sasha Kagan, Sally Melville, and Kristin Nicholas when the scarves are considered together, they represent an exploration of techniques that provide new ways to think about knitting and crochet. Scarf Style is also a manual on how to make a scarf without a pattern: With only a pile of leftover yarns or several carefully chosen skeins, any knitter can create an imaginative scarf. A section on knitting and crochet basics helps beginners get started, and the Designer's Notebook provides templates for basic scarves worked in three directions?end to end, sideways, or on the diagonal?along with suggestions for design variations: stitch patterns, stripe arrangements, and shapes. This book is sure to make you into a scarf wearer, and make a knitter or crocheter out of anyone who loves to wear scarves.
