Review Sweet Shawlettes by Jean Moss
I wanted to like this book, but it has too many flaws for me. -All the patterns use Rowan yarn. If a book is very specific about yarn, I expect that to be part of the title. -I don't think a scarf or cowl is a shawlette. A shoulder wrap that turns into a cowl is fine, but a cowl is different than a shawl. -Charts are pretty good, but I hate charts. These patterns aren't also written out. -Some of these patterns take 6 or 8 balls of yarn. That's not small to me. At $21.95 this is a borrow from the library type of book, not a purchase!
