Family Favorite Review by Paula

My family owns two dog-eared copies of this book. Two, because we all knit and aren't always good at sharing. Dog-eared, because between the five of us, we've made almost every design in the book. So many times I've bought a book or magazine because of just one design. Or, I've bought a book to discover that all the designs are all basically the same and just variations of each other. That's not the case here. This book has many lovely and different designs.

I love that Ms Oberle models every shawl. It's so much easier to tell how the garment is going to look when, in every picture, it's shown on the same body.

I can't say that I've had any problems with the instructions, although we've all had to come up with some cleaver techniques to keep up with the counting. This book has become our go-to book when we want to make a special gift.

I'm done gushing now.

Frustrating book! Review by Sally

There are some beautiful shawls shown in this book, but I tried two or three of them and the patterns contained such major errors that I could not finish the project. It was terribly frustrating! And I am NOT a novice knitter. Unfortunately, the instructions were impossible. It's a real shame, because the shawls are very nice.
