Description

Expand your idea of what a scarf can be!  This eBook 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 easy-to-download eBook is sure to make you into a scarf wearer, and make a knitter or crocheter out of anyone who loves to wear scarves.

Disappointed, disgusted Review by Faye

I bought this book in good faith, and I'm upset, disgusted and disappointed because the pictures are blurry. Not what I paid for. Don't buy this ebook. Whoever ran off these copies should be ashamed...the quality is very poor.

Great content variety. Review by Robyn

A huge range of different projects to be inspired and choose from. Perfect for the scarf lover. One star is lost because in my download almost all the pictures are quite blurry but the instructions are clear and fine. I got this as a freebie when I bought the Scarf Style Book 2 which is also a fabulous collection of inspiration. I don't download very often and the Scarf 2 Book is great quality so maybe I'll stick to hardcopy format. The two books together offer a fabulous array of possibilities, congrats to your designers and keep up the good work.
