A Disappointment

The idea of this series of little books is great -- small books with patterns for small things. Pop them in your purse, and you can knit in waiting rooms and traffic jams. And of course, being a Vogue book, this one contains accurate, clear instructions with good photographs.
But the patterns themselves are a disappointment. A jester's hat, a sort of crusader helmet, a Peruvian cap without the style of a real Peruvian cap -- these are some examples of the extreme. Those that are not extreme are old-fashioned: a long-tailed ski cap, a fisherman's hat so badly designed that even in the (doubtless beutifully knitted) example, the increases and decreases are obtrusive and ugly, a very ordinary watch cap.
I'll probably carry this with me in the fall to make watch caps and berets for holiday gifts, but I wouldn't have bought it if I had seen inside it first.
