This book has just arrived and I was surprised by how many projects were included. I have already have her book of wrist warmers that are included but with so many hats, scarfs, headbands and cute boot cuffs, you will be spoilt for choice. The projects use a variety of different yarn weights, colours and the instructions are easy to follow so you can make the items to suit you. Excellent photography and a lovely solid book.

This book contains lots of lovely knits which are nicely laid out with well written patterns. There is a nice variety of colours and yarn types used. With some straightforward patterns alongside those with different stitches, colourwork and cabling there should be enough variety to keep most knitters happy. I am a fairly new knitter and the hardest part is trying to decide what to make first!

An absolute must have book for any knitter, it's packed full of beautiful patterns for hats, scarves, gloves, snoods and so much more! The instructions with each pattern are clear and concise. There is also a full list of abbreviations used throughout the book leaving no room for confusion. I really like this book and I think perhaps my first make will be a pair of boot cuffs.

My first impression was WOW as i opened the book and it does not disappoint. A variety of patterns, some making lovely gifts (boot cuffs for my grandson is one). The patterns use straight and circular needles, one colour wool or several. This book would suit a beginner to knitting and as they build their skills so they could explore the more complicated patterns. An all round excellent book.

This is a compilation of the various Twenty to Make books featuring patterns for scarves, wrist warmers, headbands, snoods, hats and boot cuffs. It is a mix of easy and more complex designs comprising lace, cables and colourwork. Specific yarns are not named but are described as 'light DK alpaca' or 'light worsted Aran' for example. A degree of experience is assumed as there is no section on techniques, but this would be a useful book for making gifts for anyone who is moving on from the beginner stage, as none of the projects are too large or complicated.
