Great collection of classic cabled sweaters. Some photos are obviously dated but it is obviously the best of the best of years of magazine designs. A great collection.
I want to make every project in this book and already have all the supplies to make a very intricate vest featured. I like the way the patterns are laid out, this is thorough and has very good detail. I think this is probably the best book I have, most books having a pattern or two I like and some good pointers. This one is packed from cover to cover.
