scrumptious knits

Posted on Posted in book reviews/events

scrumptious knits by designer carol feller, is a slim collection of seven projects, all knit from fyberspates scrumptious yarn, a merino/silk blend available in a variety of weights.

the ebook is available both on ravelry and on the designer’s site; patterns can also be purchased separately.

the collection includes three sweaters that reflect carol’s keen eye for detail. cables, openwork, or unique construction are used to accent garment lines and provide shaping, both physically and visually.

so that even the warmer sweater styles have a lovely, feminine quality.

the yarn choices contribute to this as well; you can tell that the fabrics have a luxurious hand and beautiful drape—just the thing to provide a lighter edge to heavier cabled panels and textures.

carol uses the lighter weight version of scrumptious to create several accessory projects—a lace shawl, fingerless mitts, and a hat.

i like the vintage look of the hat and mitts in particular.

while the sweaters are a bit more involved, the accessory projects are simple and very giftable. if you have fyberspates yarns in your stash, this might be the book for you.

carol has graciously provided us with a giveaway hardcopy version of her booklet; if you’d like to be eligible to win a copy, please leave a comment at the end of this post by 9pm EST on monday, april 23rd. we’ll choose a name and report back (hopefully) on tuesday when i’m back at my desk.

  1. Oooh, I like that sweet little short sleeve cardi. And that hat would be quite nice, too.

  2. That grey cardigan has such lovely details! And so do the other designs, really, but this one has caught my eye and is begging to be first on the needles… Thanks for offering us a chance at winning a copy of this booklet.
