Beginners love knitting scarves because they're easy; experienced knitters love them because the projects are fast. Continuing Storey's popular die-cut Knit! series, Knit Scarves! features 16 unique scarf patterns that range from the toasty warm to the way cool to the tres chic. Candi Jensen--a craft and needlework designer with 25 years of experience--discusses everything from choosing the proper needles to avoiding such gaffs as mixing acrylic yarn with mohair yarn (acrylic needs a dryer to keep its shape, while mohair should never see the inside of a dryer). The friendly, step-by-step instructions and color-coded charts make Knit Scarves! perfect for knitters of all skill levels.
