5.0 von 5 Sternen cute mittens 27. August 2008
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
this is full of the cutest mittens, I would recommend this book. It has a brilliant way of putting the patterns in such a way that you can easily see/keep track of which size you are knitting.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Good at first glance, but annoying to use 2. Januar 2007
Von Huan-hua Chye - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
At first glance, this seemed like a great little book with a variety of interesting patterns: lots of stranded colorwork, felted mittens, a good variety of sizes.

- I liked the layout of the instructions in tables so you can easily keep track of the numbers for the size you're making.

- I also liked the fact that the instructions for the left and right hand shapings are written out, rather than the author just saying "repeat, reversing shaping for the other hand."

However, there were definitely a few annoyances that I ran into when I started trying to use the book:

- No row gauge given for the patterns! I'm currently almost at the end of my first North Star Mitten and it looks like even though I was over on stitch gauge, my row gauge is tighter than what the author assumes, and my mitten will end up being shorter than my hand. For plain stockinette patterns, I guess this doesn't matter much since the row/stitch ratio is usually pretty consistent, but with the combination of colorwork and yarn worked on smaller needles than recommended, it would be really helpful if the author also gave ROW GAUGE instead of just telling you "x stitches per inch."

- No yardage information for the yarns used--the author just tells you the number of skeins of a certain kind of yarn. If you want to substitute yarns, it's up to you to research the recommended yarns on the Internet if you want to find out how many yards this translates to. If some of these are partial skeins, this isn't specified either.

- There is no single glossary of knitting terms. I encountered the abbreviation "ssk2tog" in one place and had to hunt all over the book to figure out if this was the same as the term that is usually written "ssk." (Yes, it is.) I also had to cross-reference a couple of different pages to find the author's definition of "M1". I prefer books that list all their abbreviations together, in a single glossary at the end, rather than scattering them throughout the book in cute little sidebars.

- I would have liked the mittens to all come in a consistent range of sizes. The "chicky feet" mittens were cute, but only had instructions for children's sizes. It would have been great to see children's, women's, and men's sizes for all the mittens.

Overall, it's a nice little book to get out from the library (which is what I did) but I probably wouldn't buy it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent book 13. Februar 2003
Von Margaret L. Solomon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I love the patterns in this book and the way the book is laid out. The directions are easy to follow. I especially like the charts letting you choose other yarn, gauge, and size of mitten. I really dislike it when a pattern calls for one size yarn and I want to use another. This book helps you avoid that.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Find Something else 10. Februar 2004
Von B. George - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I wish I hadn't spent the money on this book, which I got becuase it's companion "Knit Hats!" was excellent. Knit Mittens! does not have the variety of interesting concepts and patterns found in Knit Hats! I wouldn't reccomend this book to anyone if they haven't looked through it themselves and decided whether or not it is worth buying for the few patterns they will probably enjoy.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent for charity knitting 18. Juli 2009
Von Fay - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I got this book at the library and liked it enough to buy it (at the discounted price). I'm an experienced knitter who makes mittens for charities, so it doesn't matter what size the finished mitten is - someone will have warm hands. I agree that there should be a row gauge, and sizes for child/woman/man for all the patterns would have been nice. However, it's great to have several sizes within each category.

I'm giving it 4 stars because I like the format & the pattern choices -- for my charity knitting, this book is perfect., But it could definitely be better written, especially for beginning knitters.

As an added thought: knitting up a sample swatch (which I personally don't enjoy!) is always a good idea. You can use your swatch measurements with the suggested finished sizes provided (or measure the hand the mitten is intended for!) to find out if your finished mitten will be the correct length. Most patterns can accommodate extra rows (or take out a few), even when you're doing a complicated Fair Isle design. Or you can use a slightly smaller or larger needle. Just be sure to make your swatch in the PATTERN that you'll be using -- whether it's cables, ribbing, or 2-color work.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good tips 9. Juni 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Being a beginner knitter, I rather like this book than the Knit Hats book. Although the 2 books have color knitting, this one on mittens gives out several tips on how to continue with the color patterns when increases are made for the mittens and the explanation can be easily understood. Just wish they teach how to continue the color patterns if there are decreases.
