    A reviewer

    The designs appear like a collection of the best of the best from design history. The models are real people who glow in well designed garments. The patterns are well written and understandable. The classics became classics for a reason.

    Beautiful garments inspired by fashion's archives

    Veronik Avery is one of my favorite designers, and with good reason. Her patterns are elegant, stylish but not trendy, with thoughtful details. 'Knitting Classic Style' is all of these things: a gorgeous book and an essential addition to the knitter's library. The garments are mainly women's sweaters, with a few accessories and a few items for men and girls. The photography is luscious, featuring non-waif models and striking backdrops from the streets of Montreal. The patterns include diverse techniques such as stranded colorwork (the Latvian gloves are to-die), cablework and lace patterning. Buy it now.

    I haven't had a chance to knit any of the patterns yet, but this

    I haven't had a chance to knit any of the patterns yet, but this book is amazing!  The patterns are easy to follow and the photos are stunning.  There is a variety of things to knit.  Sometimes "classic" means old fashion, but I thought everything in this book looked classic and modern. Sometimes it is hard to find a knitting book that includes multiple patterns that you want to knit, but this book contained many patterns that I cannot wait to knit!
