    *Starred Review* British high-schooler Ben Fletcher has so many problems, it's hard to know where to start. Let's see. His friends coaxed him into stealing a bottle of vermouth, but he bollixed the shoplifting, resulting in an altercation with a senior citizen crossing guard. As part of his rehabilitation, Ben must do community service and take up a hobby. Because the knitting night class is taught by a teacher he is crushing on, he joins, only to learn she actually teaches pottery, and now he is stuck with two knitting needles and a ball of yarn. But what's this? Ben, who excels at math, finds he is very good at deciphering patterns, and his stitch tension is perfect. Soon he is the star of the class (though he doesn't care for colorwork or knitting tea cozies). This wild jumble of fun and wool is also full of heart, thanks to Ben's sweet, worried, and clever voice. Written in diary format (with a wink and a nod to Bridget Jones), this spins from one outrageous (and occasionally raunchy) incident to the next. But it's not all plot and heavy-duty knitting action. Relationships are center stage: the double-entendre bantering of Ben's parents; Ben's evolving association with the aforementioned crossing guard; his trouble with both women and friends. Unique, this one will keep you in stitches. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
