Crafting

Knitting book helps you prepare for cold months ahead

A collection of fashion-forward scarves are featured in Ann Budd’s “Scarf Style 2, Innovative to Traditional, 26 Fresh Designs to Knit,” (Interweave/$24.95).

From straight to circular, you’re sure to find a scarf, shawl or cowl that suits your taste.┬áDesigns range from textured and casual to lacy with a┬ámore dressy appeal for evenings out on the town.

“Scarves are comfort food for knitters, and a great way to learn new techniques without a big investment in time or materials,” reads the back cover, in part.

For knitters of all levels, the book is filled with a number of different techniques for creating a variety of stitches, giving each scarf its own unique look.
