    I only love this book for the Chanson en Crochet pattern I hate books that only offer 2 crochet patterns out of 20 and label the book for knitters and crocheters.

    I checked this one out from the library recently While I don t like very many wrap patterns I see the truth is, a lot of them look pretty dorky to me, including the one on the cover of the book there are some lovely ones in this book.I d seen the Shetland Triangle on many blogs including Grumperina s and I think I might like to try something like that after I test my teeth on abasic lace project The Tapestry Garden looks like a lovely felted fair isle project which I d prefer sans I checked this one out from the library recently While I don t like very many wrap patterns I see the truth is, a lot of them look pretty dorky to me, including the one on the cover of the book there are some lovely ones in this book.I d seen the Shetland Triangle on many blogs including Grumperina s and I think I might like to try something like that after I test my teeth on abasic lace project The Tapestry Garden looks like a lovely felted fair isle project which I d prefer sans faux fur collar Lastly, I just might have to knit up the Shoulder Cozy for a quick little item to throw over on cool evenings I couldn t find any links on these latter two is anyone working on it Wrap Style also features a section called Design Notebook, with handy tips and instructions for designing your own wrap, in case you want to alter some of the patterns in the book or start entirely from scratch

    I am very pleased with this book and will use it often I enjoy making shawls and wraps this book comes with 24 patterns, and I immediately wanted to try out about half of them The instructions are clear, and there are plenty of helpful images to refer to while working on all the projects included For me, one of the best chapters included in this book is the knit from the top down capelets I haven t tried any of those before, but the ones included are all very functional and stylish.

    I have almost completed the arrowhead lace cardigan capelet I have to pickup and work the collar and then I will have a beautiful new capelet The book gave easy to follow instructions The only issue I have found with the book and patterns is that sizing information is difficult to find It would help to have measurement information for sizing purposes Not all shoulders and busts are the same

    A purchased fur collar for the felted cape and I looked everywhere for the word faux but it wasn t to be found , what year is this And I don t even want to know how possum fur is collected for yarn.Pluses for decent designs, including schematics, and for encouraging even new knitters to strike out on their own subtraction for being pro on pelting.

    I loved some of the books in this Interweave Press series, but unfortunately, not this particular book There are some cute patterns that would look good in a hat or sweater and the editing looks good with the pretty photos I just don t and won t be wearing a wrap anytime soon.128 pages and borrowed from the library3 stars128 pages

    This is a very disappointing book Of the 24 patterns, only four were crochet Clearly this is designed for knitters I gave two stars because Shirley Padden s Wrapped in Tradition is a gorgeous poncho that I might try to make Outside of that, no patterns worth pursuing for crocheters here.
