  Library Journal Review

This book by teenaged knitter Paulin stands out from the numerous other knitting titles for young adults because of the fine selection of projects and the high quality of its instruction. Once teens learn the basics of knitting a few scarves, they will want to take a stab at one of the felted bag projects or the bright, wide-striped tube top/skirt (there are 39 projects in all). The liberal use of color, illustrations, and varied typography make this book easy to navigate for teens used to hopping around the web. At such a reasonable price, this is an excellent selection for public library YA collections. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Summary
Finally: a teen knitting book actually written by a teen who understands what's hot and what's not, what's chic and what's for geeks. Sarah Paulin loves fashion and she's created a closet's worth of patterns that will add flair to any hip chick's wardrobe. With knitting so popular now, what girl could resist making the lacy shrug in bright melon, accented with eyelash yarn? Or a stylish chunky scarf with a loop detail and a kicky knitted tube that does double duty as either a top or skirt? In addition to the cool clothes, trendy knitters will find a journal cover with a fun flower closure, a cozy throw in sherbet shades, and purses that range from flirty clutches to retro totes with pompom embellishments.
