 Terrific Patterns & Yarn 1 of 60 
 Review by: handrade     (read handrade's 1 other review) Jun 24, 2007 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Plaid Collection
The patterns are fanstastic, took some time as I am a beginner but plenty of varying patterns for every skill level.  The yarn knits beautifully, only disappointed as they seemed to have discountinued the yarn.  First found my color on eBay and then found the yarn here at Jimmy Beans and bought up some more for my next project.

 definitely do your gauge swatch 2 of 60

This collection consists of 16 designs that are classic and stylish, as you would expect from Kim Hargreaves. All of the patterns are written for the Rowan yarn Plaid and are all reccommended to be knit up on size 11 needles. My only beef is with their gauges. if every pattern is knit on the same size needles with the same yarn, then why are some of the patterns listed as having 11 sts/4in, some as being 13sts, some as 15sts, and some as 16sts? I've worked several of them and these patterns really do knit up beautifully, you just have to do a lot of fiddling before you start to work one to make sure that you get gauge.

I love all of the recipes in this book! I'm just sorry that some of them require Creative Focus Worsted.

Another great Rowan book full of cozy possibilities for the colder months. The Gabriele Shrug and Noelle Capelet will be the first two on my project list.

I find the Rowan pattern books full of inspiration to knit something perfect for me. I'm spending more time on the couch and this book keeps me thinking about my next project.

Some great, very classic looking patterns in this book. I will make some in Angora Haze, and some in the possum fingering in my stash!
