Reviews - What do customers think about Folk Vests: 25 Knitting Patterns & Tales from Around the World (Folk Knitting series)?

lucky to own this book  Dec 24, 2007
ALL the vests pictured in the book are absolutely beautiful. This book made me dreamt of wearing vests for all the days of the week. I cannot wait to start and finish each one. Regarding the gauge problems that other reviewers mentioned; I've learned that they can be different according to tension and needles used. For example, straight versus circular. In my opinion, this book is one of the most favourite I own to date. (And I have the whole library full) ^_^
Traditional, Classic, and Innovative Designs  Sep 6, 2007
This book is a design library and Folk Vests are frequently seen being proudly worn at the big knitting shows. The wide variety of stitch and construction techniques makes Folk Vests a great learning guide for the newer knitter, and experienced knitters will find designs that showcase their skills. The photos of the vests give good stitch detail. All the patterns give clear instruction and finished measurements. Minor errata have been corrected in the new printings and are also available from the publisher on the web. Highly recommended for avid knitters and students of knitting alike.
Folk Vest  Aug 30, 2007
Photographs of the vests are beautiful, only wish the gauges worked. I tried the Bookworm vest and ended up searching the internet for corrections. I recommend, before knitting patterns, search for corrections.
Study in Frustration  Aug 25, 2007
This pattern book has very nice looking vests but,
unfortunately, the instructions have too many errors.
I tried to knit the Bookworm vest and it came out huge
even though the gauge measured correctly.
Wish I had not purchased the book.

Enjoying the book, it provides me with an outlook on vests from other countries. Recommend this book to all who are interested in knitting styles .
