    Has some useful instructions and interesting patterns, but I have yet to be inspired enough to make anything from this book.

    Excellent Book!

    I've been knitting for 1 1/2 years and I've made 4 projects from this book. People always compliment me on my projects. I've used this book to teach four friends at work how to knit. The explanations are great, the pictures are beautiful, and the patterns are easy.

    One of the Best Knitting Books ever!

    As a beginner, thsi book has proven to be one of the best in explanations of patterns and the simplicity of the instructions. It is very well written and I highly recommend it for anyone that loves to knit!! I sure hope they publish another book. The best part is that the patterns are of items that people would wear or use now a days and they are not 'outdated'... Buy this book - you won't be sorry!!!!

    Great book for starting to knit

    I am a beginning knitter and within 2 weeks, I knitted my very first sweater, and it's wearable! I found this book inspiring and I love the beautiful yarns they use throughout. The one drawback I have found is that the yarns used are all very expensive. Beware, there are no cheap projects in this book. However, the patterns are all easy to understand and look so gorgeous, you can't help but want to make them, no matter the sacrifice... The projects in this book do not require anything more than 1 pair of knitting needles, yarn, ruler, and a tapestry needle. This really is a book of simple knits. Imagine my shock when I saw a knitting pattern at the store for a simple-looking sweater that required all kinds of needles and other accessories I've never even seen before. I think this book will help you get the basics down, and allow you to make some great projects, but in order to further explore knitting, you will have to find another book. But I'm definitely hooked!

    Simple and Stylish

    I've been a rabid knitter for several years and I've always been a little disappointed by the amount of frumpy patterns available. This book is completely different. It is filled simple and helpful instructions and trully stylish knits. I've already knit two projects and everyone I know has asked me where I bought them. They look like I bought them at a designer boutique. Even better, none of them are that hard to knit. If you like to knit or want to learn, this book is a must.
