Review: Reversible Scarves by Audrey Knight

Reversible Scarves by Audrey Knight, Cooperative Press 2012, 134pp.

Every once in awhile a pattern book comes along that you just know you’ll keep going back to – and Audrey’s Reversible Scarves is one of those.

Audrey presents more than 30 patterns, ranging from simple to intermediate plus, and a plethora of information to empower the knitter to create their own patterns.  She addresses the impact that yarn choice (weight, color, fiber blend and so on) can have on the finished object throughout the book – compare the different mistake rib scarves, for example, or the linen stitch scarves worked in different types of yarn.

Techniques include ribbing, knit/purl textures, cables, lace, slip stitch with multiple colors, and double knitting.  Many of the patterns with charts include, if practical, line by line instructions.

My favorite, I think (though it’s really, really hard to choose!), is the double knit Surprise Stripes scarf, featuring horizontal stripes on one side & vertical on the other.

It’s no surprise that I love the various cabled scarves as well, especially the Braided Cables scarf & the Cables & Knots scarf.

The girly part of me love the ruffled edges of the Double Eyelet and Cables scarf – and the glorious ruffles of Tux!
