Knitovation is based upon a very intriguing design idea – putting together basic squares and rectangles, in different sizes, to make various garments. This book contains more than 25 patterns, designed in just that way. With only a few exceptions, however, the garments are somewhat boxy (well, what else can be expected from squares and rectangles?), and attempts to compensate for or hide that defect are made with heavy use of glitzy, fuzzy, fancy novelty yarns. The photos are good, as are the instructions and diagrams, but there simply isn’t enough here that I’d like to knit.
