Coffeehouse Knits: Knitting Patterns and Essays with Robust Flavor
Knitting has long been something many knitters wish to accomplish in a social environment. Knitting clubs pop up all over, and coffeehouses are no exception. This pretty book contains a few short essays about the social aspect of knitting groups, but they are ancillary to the heart of the book — twenty patterns for knitting projects. Each of these knitting projects is named for a coffeehouse beverage. While they are not appropriate for rank beginners, they are fine for those in the advanced beginner to intermediate range. Each project has information on the finished size, what yarn and needles to use, notions needed, the gauge used, and some notes as well as finishing instructions. Most have both written instructions and charts, although some have one or the other rather than both. Photographs of the finished project being worn complete each project section. Back matter includes a page of abbreviations used in the book and several pages of techniques with excellent illustrations. The projects include scarves, cowls, sweaters, hats, socks, shawls, and mittens. Most of the sweaters are pullovers. This is a fun book that will give advanced beginners a chance to build their skills and make some satisfying garments while doing so.
