Best pattern book I've bought in years!

I buy a lot of knitting books---probably too many. Usually there's a pattern or two worth knitting, and that's enough. In this book, I'd say there's a pattern or two NOT worth knitting. Everything else is an absolute gem. I've had the book three months and I'm already knitting two sweaters from it, the striking Transparency and the classic Balloon-Sleeve Jacket (which appears on the cover). This book should be on the shelf of any sweater knitter, especially, and anyone who wants to knit sweaters. Many of the designs are simple, but not the kind of "big-needle-fast-knit-crap" found in all too many books these days. These are thoughtful designs with shaping and drape to flatter most figures. Most are classics; a few are fashion-forward. Most are mid-weight (worsted, DK, Aran), some are lighter for a less bulky fit. Do yourself a favor and at least flip through this book, or check it out on Ravelry. I think you'll find you can't wait to acquire a copy.

Fabulous book!

This book just arrived a few days ago and I'm so excited about it. I have left it on my coffee table and I keep picking it up to look through all the gorgeous patterns. There are 25 items in the book, and only 3 or 4 that I likely won't make. Absolutely stunning patterns and the fashions are really current and sexy. I still consider myself a novice - have only been knitting for a year and I'm just getting started with more difficult pieces. This book is not for beginners, but there is a range of difficulty to the patterns, so you can absolutely progress through it, starting with something a little simpler like the shrug or a wrap and working your way up to the adorable dresses and lacework.

Patterns live up to the name

More time than not lately new knitting books don't live up to there names, this is certainly not the case with this title. There are few patterns that I wouldn't be very happy to knit and to wear. I have only started one pattern, the lily of the valley gloves. I fell in love with them the first time I saw them.

Impressive Collection of Beautiful Knits!

This book provides a great selection of versatile but wearable knits. Selecting the first project will be difficult. The designs are classic with just enough flair or extras that add significantly to their appeal. This is a wonderful addition to the my knitting library.

Really Beautiful, WEARABLE Designs!

Even if you aren't into the whole "luxury fibers" thing, even if you are a "non standard size", and even if your tastes run more classic and conservative than most, you will find MANY gorgeous items to knit in this book. Classic, feminine, beautiful, wearable to work if one desires, functional designs fill the pages. There isn't a single item in here about which I thought, "hmmm - maybe if I were 20 years younger/20 pounds lighter/or 20 times hotter, I might wear that." And even my knitting daughter who IS younger lighter/hotter by factors of 20 found the designs gorgeous and desirable, too. THe layout of the book is lovely, patterns flow right from the gorgeous photos, and SO Much information is given, not only on yarn and needles and gauge, but also on what size was photographed, how much ease the piece was designed around, and so on, which will make choosing a size a snap, and a properly fitting garment the result of your time investment. If you love beautiful knitwear design, you need this book. It's that simple.
