Reviews - What do customers think about Vogue Knitting on the Go: Shawls (Vogue Knitting on the Go!)?
Creative shawls, sloppy instructions, not for beginners Apr 11, 2008
I have knitted two shawls from this book, the Diamond Shawl and the Vine-Stitch Wrap. I agree that this book is beautifully printed, but poorly edited. The Vine-Stitch Wrap instructions are okay, but a chart would have been most helpful. The instructions for the Diamond Shawl are just flat out incorrect for the beginning rows and make for a very frustrating experience. The chart is helpful once the adjustment for the error is made. For the Shetland Shawl, the instructions for provisional cast-on are very confusing, not instructing you to use the Left Hand to separate the main and the scrap yarns. If I were a novice knitter trying to use this book, I would be bald by now.
Another solid pattern book Mar 28, 2008
Like many pattern books, this one is hit or miss. Several of the shawls, like the noro shawl on the cover, are simply lovely and well worth checking the book out. As is pretty usual, there are also the total duds. But on the balance, this is a solid book with many good patterns and several interesting ideas.
vogue Knitting on the Go: Shawls Mar 20, 2007
This little volume contains a variety of interesting shawls to knit. I would recommend against a novice or a beginner knitter from buying this book. The patterns are more suited to a knitter with more advance skills. While the shawls are pretty the twists and turns one has to do may discourage the most determined knitter.
ONE OF VOGUES BEST Aug 19, 2006
AS A SHAWL KNITTER, I FOUND THIS TO BE ONE OF THE BEST SHAWL BOOKS EVER.
Good collection Aug 14, 2006
Good selection of different patterns - only a couple I would make for myself, but interesting designs.
