Book Review

I really like Celtic Knits: Over 25 Designs for Babies, Children and Adults because there are some truly beautiful and inspiring projects to make for the whole family. The projects in this book include scarves, sweaters, hats, socks and jackets for adults and children. The projects range in style between casual and elegant items of clothing such as the Fair Isle Cardigan and the Cashmere Crossover Top.

At the beginning of the book there is a brief introduction and some basics including tension, knitting terms (abbreviations and differences between British and US terms) and washing instructions for the yarn called Rowan denim used in several of the projects in this book. This is always handy and helpful to read before starting a new project because it is kind of like a refresher and helps to ensure success with your knitting.

The instructions for the project are standard and clearly written. A pattern chart with a color key accompanies each project that requires it. The measurements and number of balls of yarn required are provided and adjusted for the different sizes it is possible to make for each project. Accompanying the instructions for each project there is a photo of the finished product being worn or displayed beautifully. The adjusted number of stitches required for different sizes is also provided in brackets next to the original amount.

Debbie Bliss has written quite a few knitting books from instructional books on knitting to collections books such as this one and you definitely can’t go wrong with her experience backing them. The intermediate knitter will have no problem with these patterns because they already have some experience knitting but this book would be a great buy for all knitters even if you weren’t ready to make the projects in it. One day you may be looking for the right thing to knit and it will be in this book.
