Boas and Tippets by Maggie Andrews
£5.50, 10 pgs. Instant download at http://www.craftybob.com/shop/maggie-andrews-mking.html Cute decorations for the neck and so pretty you will want to make all of the nine patterns in this booklet. Most do not use a ribber, but one does, one also for weaving. A fun way to trim jackets, cuffs, sweaters, knit tops and other outer wear or just wear around the neck. A nice idea for that teenage girl in your life. You can also make necklaces and matching bracelets. Very easy to follow directions. Uses eyelash, knitting ribbon, chenille and other fun yarns.

Keyhole Scarf Collection
by Kathryn Doubrley
$20.00 instant download from http://www.theanswerlady.com. 45 pgs. With these 13 patterns you can make 100’s of scarves using this key method. Using any machine, any gauge, even the Passap. From plain knit, to tuck, to cables, to eyelash, to lined, you will find something that someone will love. The book has a basic and a beginner pattern, and a pattern using designer yarns. The Passap Fairisle scarf is great, and the ribbon scarf is beautiful! Has lots charts, pictures, diagrams. Ribber required on a few of the patterns. My favorite is the Interlocking Leaves pattern. Another must have book from Kathryn.
