I love all of Nicky Epstein's books. She is a terrific designer, and the patterns are easy to read. The photos are yummy, and the projects work up well and are a lot of fun. I would recommend this book, and all of her books, to anyone who loves to handle wonderful yarns.

Nicky Epstein is one of the luminaries of the knitting world. Known for her innovative use of embellishments, Nicky Epstein's Knitted Flowers presents a bouquet of blossoms suitable for every occasion and outfit. This reference volume presents more than thirty-five different floral designs, as well as several patterns using the flowers.
Epstein divides the book into five sections based on the method of construction: stitch pattern flowers; petal constructed flowers; cord flowers; felted stitch pattern flowers; and felted cut flowers; with the majority of the designs using the first method. Knitted Flowers provide knitters a starting point to explore their flights of fancy. As Epstein suggests: "The flowers can be layered, and stems and leaves may be added. Bobbles, bangles, buttons and beads sewn to the centers bring the flowers an extra touch of beauty."
Nicky Epstein's Knitted Flowers isn't an essential addition to a knitter's library; however knitters looking for unique accessories, and those who love flowers, are sure to find inspiration here for years to come. Clear instructions and large, color photos are provided for each design.
Armchair Interviews says: This is sure to be a welcome addition to most knitters' collections.
