All-Occasion Scarves by Rena V. Stevens contains six eccentric scarf patterns. Though these knit scarves are not typical, they would be fun to create and show off.
The booklet shows all the pictures of the scarves in bright, vibrant colors, on the full size of the paper. The photos are clear, and though they don’t show up close texture photos, you are still able to see the texture and stitch pattern. The knitting patterns are easy to read and understand, and there are complete instructions from start to finish for each scarf pattern. Each pattern gives the yarn used, how many skeins, the weight of the yarn, and the gauge for the scarf.
None of these scarf patterns are super difficult, and all of them are given the rating of either “easy” or “intermediate.” There is a page with basic knitting information, including black and white images of basic knit stitches, such as how to yarn over, make fringe, and how to knit or purl two together. On the last page of the booklet, there is more yarn information, including the colors used, if you would like to recreate the scarf they have shown in the booklet.
The scarves themselves range in style, type of yarn, and color, but all are interesting and look fun. Some have smooth chunky yarn, and one even includes a fun colorful eyelash yarn. My personal favorite is the Shades of Grey scarf, with the elegant color changes. Overall, if you would like a few patterns for eclectic scarves, I would recommend this Leisure Arts booklet.
