I feel the need for a slight disclaimer here: I've never done any colorwork, let alone mosaic colorwork. So, when I say this book's instructions are clear and make it look simple, I might be absolutely full of shit. But, regardless, this book's clarity give me the confidence to try. So that's something.

Now, the patterns. I like them. As the title says, there are 20 patterns, ranging from scarfs to wrist warmers to bags. The majority of the patterns full into the "Stuff you wear around your neck"

This is a magic book for lovers of mosaic and lace knits. I learned so much through the lovely illustrations and info. I recommend this to everyone who is passionate about lace. I will definitely buy this book as soon as it is available in my region.

GNab I received a free copy of this electronic how-to book from Netgalley, Barbara Benson, and Stackpole Books in exchange for an honest review. Thank you all, for sharing your hard work with me!

This book contains some very interesting knitting patterns, with simple instructions and excellent photos. I am a leftie, so I really appreciate photos that can be converted to reverse at a glance. This is a knitter I will watch for!

An inventive technique that creates striking results. I look forward to trying some of the patterns presented here, which are given with clear instructions and beautifully photographed to show off the finished works. I don't love some of the color choices shown in the example, but no matter -- everyone can pick the colors that they like best! A section of color theory or a few other examples of colors for each item would have been nice, but overall this is a very well-written pattern book with a ...more

Barbara possesses one of those brilliant, creative, and generous minds that I would love to take out for coffee. She has figured out colourwork lace by building upon Barbara Walker’s Mosaic technique. This melding of brilliant Barbaras has created many new and fascinating possibilities. It has been difficult for me not to tell my schedule to go away and swatch the projects for days on end. Benson takes you through how she created this process, tips for getting started, and things to keep in mind ...more
