Here is a great soft cover book titled.. Silk Knits by Elaine Eskesen

This knitting pattern / instruction book is in very good condition with minimal wear to the covers from use and re-shelving. INSIDE the pages are at least 99% free of any marks, stains or writing.

Learn the ins and outs of knitting with silk and silk-blend yarns.

• Discover essential tips for working with silk and silk-blend yarns, such as how different yarns will behave depending on the stitches and textures you use

• Create sumptuous garments with the wide variety of silk fibers, from delicate boucles to chunky strands

• Eighteen seasonal patterns include vests, pullovers, cardigans, shells, and shawls.

The author loves silk and the 20 projects, which include some by other deisgners profiled at the back, all are of silk or silk blends. Each yarn is given the number of its weight so it is possible to use another yarn in that weight even though the author would probably be horrified. Projects are labeled in difficulty. She begins with a very nice intro on knitting with silk and helpful tips on using silk. Projects are arranged by season. In addition to written instructions, each has a schematic and charts if needed. The knitting is not meant to be complicated and the beginner as well as the more advanced can find some lovely items to make. My favorites are the lace shell, eyelet yoke pullover, circle vest in Noro silk garden, side to side jacket on cover, textured vest, beaded shrug, and frost flowers shawl.
Sizes go from 32" to 46" but several are written much larger such as the oversized cardigan from 39" to 60" finished size.The book doesn't include how to knit information which can be found in many other books. My only complaint is that silk yarns used here are not cheap, but the knitting will be fun and they will be great to wear. The patterns are what I consider to be classics although they have been given interesting details.
