Knitting Book Review on Warm Up With Scarves and Cowls from Leisure Arts

I was recently given the opportunity to review the knitting book Warm Up With Scarves and Cowls from Leisure Arts publications.  This book contains 9 fun and fairly easy knitting projects for scarves and cowls.

One of the scarves that caught my eye in this book was the Short Row Scarf – which is pictured on the left above.  I recently bought some of the Jeans yarn from Lion brand yarn and decided it would be perfect for this project.  Below is a photo of the scarf I have started with the Short Row Pattern.

The short row scarf is a great project for an intermediate knitter.  It is worked in garter stitch – all knit.   It is helpful for teaching you how to wrap and turn and do shaping which is useful in many other more advanced knitting projects.  I would think even an advanced beginner could knit this scarf.

The other scarf that I really like in this book is the one pictured above.  It is call the Triangle Scarf and is knit with 3 different yarns – 2 solid color yarns and one multi color.  I may attempt this scarf as my next knitting project from this book.

There are also a couple of pretty lace cowls in the book and another cowl called the Mosaic Cowl which is in the photo above.  The book is titled Warm Up With Scarves and Cowls but there are several projects in it that are lightweight enough that you could knit them for spring or summer weather.

You can click on any of the highlighted text or the photos to take you to the Leisure Arts website to order this book.  I think you will really like all the projects it has – there are beginner and intermediate knitting patterns in this book.

I hope you enjoyed reading and learning more about this book.
