Item description for Knitovation: Creative Knitwear Made from 3 Simple Shapes by Barry Klein & Fayla Reiss...
Beginning knitters: graduation day has come! Two designers from the highly regarded Trendsetter Yarn Company have created a collection of projects that will painlessly take novices to the next level.
What's a newly avid knitter to do when she's mastered the scarf and wants to go beyond? Too many books just repeat the same group of basics, while others set the goal too high for anyone who's not a whiz with the needles. Innovative Knitovation solves the problem, showing just how easy it can be to create something sensational while gaining proficiency at the same time. These are high-end, sophisticated fashions, with slightly more advanced skills--but all you need to know to begin is how to knit a simple square, rectangle, or triangle. At the start of each design, drawings show every piece that goes into the final product; then, there are unique techniques for putting them together for a finished item that fits beautifully and looks great.

Reviews - What do customers think about Knitovation: Creative Knitwear Made from 3 Simple Shapes?
trendy Mar 4, 2008
Knitovation is based upon a very intriguing design idea - putting together basic squares and rectangles, in different sizes, to make various garments. This book contains more than 25 patterns, designed in just that way. With only a few exceptions, however, the garments are somewhat boxy (well, what else can be expected from squares and rectangles?), and attempts to compensate for or hide that defect are made with heavy use of glitzy, fuzzy, fancy novelty yarns. The photos are good, as are the instructions and diagrams, but there simply isn't enough here that I'd like to knit.

THIS A WONDERFUL BOOK ------------ INOVATIVE AND YET, EVERY DESIGN IS TOTALLY WEARABLE IN EVERY CLIMATE.
Outstanding stuff from squares and rectangles Sep 27, 2007
This is an absolutely great book for anyone, but a real motivation for beginners. Everything in the book is "shaped" from squares and rectangles. If you can knit, purl, cast on and bind off, you have it covered. The looks are extremely new and fresh looking, and great for all body shapes.
Knitting I can do... Jul 30, 2007
I have only knitted scarves and lots of them. I wanted to try something else. So, I saw this book in a store and decided to get it at this site about a week later. I find that it really is easy to just make rectangles and piece them together and have a sweater! Even I can do that! And beware you will need to know some stitches besides the garder. It's a whole new way of looking at knitting.
Awful Dec 31, 2006
This is the worst knitting book I have bought to date. Most of the patterns are truly horrible looking. If you like to stick out like a sore thumb, or you like to have people laughing at you behind your back, then you may like these patterns.
