Reviews - What do customers think about Vogue Knitting on the Go: Chunky Knits?
Not as exciting as I had hoped Mar 28, 2007
I haven't actually knit anything from this book yet, and I'm not sure that I will. I didn't think that the sweaters in the book were very "Vogue" although they do not look difficult to make. I would rate most of the patterns as Intermediate level. The pictures are all in color which is nice, but the sweaters are not on models...so it is difficult to tell how they would look on someone, even a size 6 model, in real life.
not so fabulous Oct 2, 2006
I checked this out before purchasing it, and I am glad I did for I did not find the patterns in this book to be as "fabulous" as other reviewers did. There really were just a couple that I would be interested in making and those do not include any of the sweater patterns which comprise most of the book. The sweaters are very boxy and not particularly stylish -- not very Vogue, in my opinion! Yes, they are knit with chunky yarn, but that doesn't always equal plain and boxy. There is a variety of patterns here, with a couple hats; scarf; men's, women's and children's sweaters; even a pillow pattern. Frankly, the only sweater I would consider making is a child's sweater, the only interesting, stylish one in the bunch, but I have no child to make it for! If you are looking for a collection of sweaters that is "Vogue", stylish, or even just interesting, this is not the pattern book for you. I also have to say that the size is nice for traveling, but would not be too easy to keep open if you are trying to follow along with a pattern and knit at the same time.
A beginner's best!!! Mar 24, 2006
This knitter's book is clearly written with ample help. All four sweater's I have knit (different patterns) from this book have classic designs with techniquely simple instructions. This should be a "must have" in every knitter's library.
Fun, quick, easy and modern! Apr 1, 2003
All the patterns are great! Chunky knits means fast results! The designs all look fresh and young (nothing too grandma-y) I just love it! I am planning to knit most, if not all, of the projects! (by the way the yarns used in the book are easy to purchase if you live in US)
not exactly for the beginner... Dec 2, 2002
This chunky book is so cute, but, not exactly for the beginner knitter. Having helped my daughter with her very first sweater project [we each knitted the Back-Buttoned Top]. Had she been on her own, I do not think she would have ended up with a sweater. As an experienced knitter, I can follow where the pattern might be going. I wish that more space would be used for type, making the instructions easier to read. I'd like to see the text delineated better. The finishing instructions leave something to be desired. She substituted Reynolds Allagash for the yarn Karabella Softig in her sweater. I used 2 stands of Reynolds Eternity.
