5.0 out of 5 stars Well planned knitting book 1 Sep 2008
By Cynthia P. Moore - Published on
Out of the 24 patterns in this book, 11 are for men which is a rare find in a knitting book. All of the patterns are clean and classic. You could wear them for years. But my favorite are the 2 skirt patterns. Unlike many knitted skirts that are tights and clingy, these are more free-flowing and figure flattering.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great selection of patterns for men and women 1 Sep 2008
By Carol S. - Published on
Casual Elegant Knits contains a lovely collection of about 24 patterns for men and women (no babies or children's wear). The patterns are divided into three groups, "City Life";"Elegant Afternoon"; and "Gotta Have It." For women, my favorites were the Lacy Scarf and simple but elegant silk tank. For men, I especially like the Gypsy Cable Scarf; the Sleek Line Sweater; and the Melange Scarf -- patterns the guys I know would actually wear and I'd enjoy knitting! I like that there are so many large, clear photographs of the projects, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful designs! 7 Sep 2008
By FishKnits - Published on
This is a great book. I've already made the Vintage Hat and plan to make the Lacy Scarf to coordinate. Another of my favorites is the Funnel Neck Sleeveless Top. It's such a classic timeless design as are all of the other designs in the book. One of the favorites in my book collection!

Verified Purchase
I ordered this book because I wanted one of the scarf patterns. I was even more excited when I got the book and found several patterns I like. However, I ran into trouble reading one of the patterns. I called Martingale; and, although the assistant who answered the phone couldn't give me an answer, she said the technical consultant from the company would call me back. Sure enough -- a couple of hours later someone called and walked me through the pattern. What absolutely wonderful customer care! I am now happily knitting the most beautiful scarf! The patterns in this book will not disappoint you!
