    I was having an unusually hard time with the Lace Spiral Scarf pattern and finally went to the publishers website. Imagine my surprise when I found SEVEN pages of corrections for this book. The scarf pattern has a mistake in 7 rows of the 16 row repeat. The cute baby Wave Jumper has 7 errors. Twenty Six of the 101 patterns are defective. It took a good hour to tape all the corrections into the book. If you buy the book, go to […] and print out the corrections as there is no telling how long they will be available online. I will be reluctant to buy anything from this publisher again. The patterns are cute but there are just too many errors.

    I have the original One Skein book and love the projects that are in it, so I was excited when the new one came out. I was not disappointed. There are many cute projects here, many that even a beginner(I would consider myself an advanced beginner) could do. I have never made a sweater yet, but I know I could knit 3 of the 4 baby sweaters. There are many cute socks, hats and scarves too. I’ve already picked out 23 patterns that I would like to make some time. That’s not bad when most knitting books seem to have 2-3 patterns that I would really want to make.

    While there are patterns for many different weights of yarn, the largest chapter is the worsted weight chapter.

    Some of my favorite patterns (and to give you an idea of what’s in the book) are: magic loop minis(mini mittens, sweater, and hat), wave jumper, sock-it-to-me scarf, garter stitch loop-through scarf, pink tweed for baby(sweater), baby squash hat, child’s hat with pompom, boy-oh-boy(sweater), not-your-average washcloths, new directions hat, baby basket hat, fishbowl baby hat, elizabeth’s perfect hat, spiral hat, kat’s hat, taos slippers, blanket buddy, waterfall scarf, cross-stitch scarf, infant’s roll neck pullover, and zane’s coming home sweater.

    I think most knitters will find many patterns in this book that they would like to knit. A great addition to your knitting library.

    I had considered buying both One Skein books for quite a long time. I figured that they had been very high up in the knitting book sales for a very long time, they had great reviews, and I thought that would mean something. The very first pattern that I tried (the eyelet shrug) had errors. I went to the Storey website for the errata and ended up printing out forty seven pages of errata for both books. Then, the corrections weren’t even complete for the pattern that I was working on. Wow. On the flip side, I have done enough knitting to work out the errors, sometimes before they even occur. My shrug turned out terrific, and I think that I will be making quite a few more of the patterns in this book. I take apart sweaters from the thrift store for the wool, and this will be a good resource for me. Just be aware of the multitude of errors, be prepared to work around them, make notes about them, and be prepared to use these patterns again and again.
