Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
"Elite" refers to Classic Elite, a U.S. yarn company that first became known for its mohair yarns and today produces quality natural-fiber yarns that are well suited to their casual, sporty patterns. Included here are instructions for 60 such cardigan and pullover sweaters designed by a "who's who" of American sweater designers like Norah Gaughan, Deborah Newton, and Michele Rose. Designers emphasize cables, color work, and the use of mohair, wool, and cotton yarns. Sweaters are rated by level of technical difficulty from beginner to very challenging, and most are presented in a full range of sizes from small to extra large. Unisex and children's sweaters abound. Although the patterns call for Classic Elite yarns, ample information is given for alternative yarn choices. Libraries should seriously consider purchasing this title for even very small knitting collections.

    Exquisite Patterns, Thorough Instructions & More

    I have been knitting nearly thirty years, since I was a young child, and I have never seen a collection of patterns this unique and beautiful. There is a nice assortment of designs for men, women, and children, ranging from easy to extremely challenging as far a skill needed to complete. The designs are truly classic, intricate, artistic, and well balanced as far as style and form. The instruction grids and pattern piece drawings are very detailed, easy to understand, and precise as far as measurements. With lovely photographs and clearly stated written instructions, this book is very thorough. There is also a nice section of tips for knitters ¿ equivalent yarns, how to read charts, figuring sizes, etc. The patterns are not at all dated, and I don¿t believe they ever will be. In the same way I can picture my mother wearing these sweaters, I think they will be completely wearable fifty years from now, so the time spent in the creation of these treasures might well be appreciated when they are passed down to an ancestor, if the sweaters are well cared for, gently worn, and still in good enough shape. My only problem with this book is that even the easy/simple patterns seem incredibly difficult. But I admit that I am intimidated by sweaters. I am more expert at socks, hats, scarves, and throws. Even recognizing my anxiety regarding sweaters, I do not think a beginner should attempt these patterns because it might lead to frustration and discouragement with knitting in general. I believe this book is more suitable for intermediate to advanced knitters. --J.H. Sweet, author of The Fairy Chronicles
