I have only been knitting for a couple of years and my 14 year old is knitting now, too. We both LOVE this book because it teaches new stitches and techniques as you progress through the book. Even if you skip to the last project, you can look at the stitch instructions in previous projects to figure out how to proceed. Also, I'm generally not a fan of the poncho --too plain for me, however, there are so many creative variations in this book that even I found a few to make and wear. The instructions are very clear and there are a couple of photos to clarify each new stitch technique. There is even a knit gauge guide in the front which saves lots of time! The only thing you really have to know is how to do a basic knit and purl stitch. This book shows a couple of different cast-on methods, increase and decrease stitches, stockinette stitch, seed stitch, knitting in the round, and more. This would make an excellent gift for new and seasoned knitters alike. We especially like it... Read more
I love this little book. The projects are diverse from simple and quick to complex. It is written so that it would be easy to convert to any yarn of similar weight. After the first review I earmarked 6 projects I would love to try.

I had the great fortune of learning to knit shawls under the tutelage of Joanne Schroeder who is one of the foremost knitters of shawls. As an accomplished shawl knitter, I found this book exciting for the variety of projects from easy and quick to complex and with a great variety of yarn weights. Fifteen years ago when I began knitting there were very few yarns appropriate for the warm weather of Oregon. This book shows ponchos and capelets appropriate for all environments.

The directions are straightforward and easy to understand. Excellent photography.

This would make a great book for shawl enthusiasts, beginners, and anyone looking for projects that tend to be free from sizing and careful shaping.
I've already made the "Eleanor Poncho" and can't wait to knit several of the others. I love the patterns and the clear instructions provided; I am an advanced beginner/early intermediate knitter and was able to learn some new stitches and how to use circular needles. I highly recommend this book.
