It is hard to imagine a knitting book with new ideas, but this is one. All the title, Drop-Dead Easy Knits, suggests, none of these patterns are very difficult. yet they are each beautiful. Included in this book by Gale Zucker, mary Lou Egan and Kirsten Kapur are cowls, scarves, hats, sweaters, wraps, mitts, socks and the list goes on. There are 29 patterns in all. Each has difficulty ratins of mindless, relaxed or attentive. There is also a list of abbreviations and instructions for each in the back plus sources for suggested yarns and a list of alternate yarns.
If there is one thing that I believe could make it better it would be to tell the weight of each yarn in the pattern. Otherwise, the directions are clear, the pictures are bright and the details can be seen clearly.
Overall, I give this book a high rating.
I was given this book by Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
