Classic Elite Shawls, Wraps & Scarves

This week I'm looking at the book Classic Elite Shawls, Wraps & Scarves.

I simply love the idea of this book. It takes a stitch motif and uses it three ways in order to make three complimenting accessories.
The book obviously uses all Classic Elite yarn, and I love how different yarns are used for each set. You might use one lace/fingering yarn for the shawl and then use a chunky yarn for the scarf. It's fun to see how the stitch patterns change with the different yarns and constructions.

I love lots of stuff in this book, but this one is my favorite:
Since it's 60 patterns in one book, the ability to read charts is a must. There is no way you would be able to fit all the written instructions for the charts in this book. But don't let the charts scare you. Most of them are small and would be great to try if you are new to chart reading!

Wondering what else is in this book? Check out the Ravelry page.

Have you picked up this book yet? Which set is your fave?
