This is a good reference with a lot of variety. One has been told not to judge a book by its cover. That adage goes for this particular book. The mittens in popcorn stitch shown are not the best style that could have been chosen to represent the book. There are some elegant opera gloves and charming hand-warmers one can choose from as well as a "muff" if your taste runs to "whimsical" -- or as the book calls it "funky." One thing that the book does NOT tell you is that if you do not care much for fancy embroidery or even fancy stitching -- such as cables and popcorns -- you can just use the basic pattern and knit it "plain." If you like short-fingered gloves, you don't have to complete the fingers either! That's what I have done with a "go-to" pattern of mine, which happens to be the "Embroidered Gauntlets" by Nicky Epstein shown on page 75. I have made this pattern over and over again and have never done the floral embroidery. The photography is done well. I have just been re-scanning this volume and have decided that perhaps I'll try the style called "riding gloves" -- really a take on "driving gloves." That would have been a better style to put on the cover.
Good variety of patterns, many with long cuffs. Just what we all need when the weather is cold as snow up the sleeve is to be avoided. Unusual patterns. Nice collection. Recommended for the mitten knitter who is ready for different styles.
If I had seen this book at a store, I probably wouldn't have bought it. There are some beautiful patterns in it, but they are all aimed at women, and are really about fashion with winter warmth as an afterthought. If you like color and adventurous knitting, this is a good book, and many of the patterns are truly lovely. I'm particularly fond of the heavily cabled patterns, and may well use them someday. There are also several pairs of gloves--some of "opera" length--which are lovely. It just wasn't what I needed in the immediate. But overall, it is a good book at a good price--particularly if you can find one used in "very good" condition.
mitten and glove patterns previously published by vogue. if you're looking for something a little more challenging, a little different, or show-stopper mittens, this book is for you.
I always enjoy Vogue publications. This is no different. Many different mitten patterns, welcome glove patterns which seem to be difficult to find and I love the fingerless mitts section. This will find use in my crafting room for years to come.
lovely workable knitting patterns for mittens and gloves for every taste. Lovely photographs, excellent directions. Basic stitches reviewed and good explainations
I LOVE THE PICTURES IN THIS BOOK.....but find it hard to understand the directions. They are too complicated and need to explain more for beginners to understand.
