After Dark :

Uncommon Knits for Night Time

by Jil Eaton

Rating:  4 sheep (very good)

 

This book is new and is available from the St. Louis County Library System. Jil Eaton is a knitwear designer primarily under the Minnow Knits label. She has published previously and can be found in Vogue Knitting International and other publications.

The designs are very chic and most appropriate for evening affairs. The book begins with a section of basic knitting instructions and materials needed. The patterns consist of formal-type tops, gloves, and a purse. The men are not forgotten with a vest appropriate for evening affairs and a few very dressy children's items. She closes with a section containing an Obi style belt, a shawl, a halter top and more.

 

The yarns used in the patterns make the items special as they are all luxurious. Jil specifies the exact yarns the samples were made from and the directions appear very complete with excellent charts for each piece of clothing with measurements --- no guessing.

 

I really enjoyed looking at this book. If you are looking for a pattern to make an extra special gift for someone who would enjoy a very dressy item, check it out!

 

Respectfully submitted,

Hareth McNally
