4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasing book 28 Jun 2009
I haven't as yet made anything from this book so cannot comment on the ease of it's patterns but I plan to make several of the garments in it for myself. I find the patterns very appealing and very wearable which for me is better than something lacy and impractical for everyday wear. The front cover is not indicative of the contents within so if you are not experienced enough to tackle multi coloured crochet then don't let this design put you off from buying the book. Most of the designs are single coloured garments. A very pleasing book that I am glad that I bought.

I've bought pattern books before but always been disappointed because there's only a couple of patterns I'd actually make. This book has quite a few that I definitely would make.

This pattern book of crochet sweaters and cardigans was a must for me to learn how to crochet sweaters. On opening this product, I found the most beautiful sweaters which were many and varied in gorgeous colours. It certainly will help me to be encouraged to try them out.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is top notch! 22 Feb 2003
By "craftycatsmeow" - Published on Amazon.com
It is a pity that the sneak peak inside this book doesn't show you the best it has to offer because it is filled with some of the most gorgeous sweater and cardigan crochet designs that I have ever seen. The aran sweaters on the back cover are absolutely gorgeous. The small pic really doesn't do them justice. The cabled aran does a great job of showing off Melissa Leapman's design genius and no longer makes me envious of knitted cable arans. If you are looking for spring and summer sweaters, you will not be disappointed. There are many gorgeous ones here as many designs use the lighter DK and sportweight yarns.
As I expected from Melissa Leapman, the instructions are very thorough. Every pattern comes with a diagram with the measurements noted. I find this extremely useful as proper fit is essential to the success of any garment. I personally tend to not meet the right guage height requirements when my width is perfect so the charts really help me to make the proper modifications. Speaking of fit, nearly every sweater featured in this book has inset sleeves which not only make a better looking garment but a more comfortable fitting one as well. In addition to the instructions, there are several tip tidbits to be found amongst the patterns throughout the book such as alternate design/color suggestions and tips for a more professional finishing.
The yarns used are all fairly easy to find or easy to substitute with another yarn. The sizes range from S-XL but there are quite a few designs that will go up to 2X as the bust measurements go up to 54 inches on some designs.
If you only want one crocheted sweater pattern book in your collection, "Crochet With Style" should be your first pick.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific sweater book! 29 July 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is the best crochet book I own and I have dozens of them. This book doesn't just give you the basics, but the sweaters are gorgeous. I never thought I'd find so many items I wanted to make all in one book. It has everything from vests to a nice fisherman's sweater. The great thing is that all the yarns listed for the patterns are not only readily available, but also reasonably priced. She uses everything from Red Heart Lustersheen to Plymouth and Lion Brand yarns. Wonderful book for both new and experienced crocheters. Bev

5.0 out of 5 stars It actually deserves 20 stars! 4 Mar 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love Melissa Leapman's sweater designs; they are not too difficult, 99% of the patterns use yarn or thread that is easily obtainable or easily substituted for. One feature I really like about Melissa's patterns is that the sleeves are frequently set in; this gives you a much nicer fit, more finished look, and makes all the work worthwhile. I really enjoy making sweaters, and Melissa Leapman's books are definitely top of the line for sweater makers.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best crochet book ON EARTH! 26 Oct 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
If I could own only one crochet pattern book, Crochet With Style would be it! Ms. Leapman delivers great-looking sweaters (including some which even look knitted), easy-to-read (and to use) patterns, and beautiful photographs. Now I have lots of terrific sweaters on my to-do list and I can hardly wait to make them all! The crochet world has been sorely lacking good sweater patterns---until now. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful pieces of art! 5 Nov 2002
By Trish - Published on Amazon.com
The garments in this book are so colorful and well designed you will feel as if you are looking at paintings. A majority of the yarns are available almost anywhere, but they way the are blended makes them seem extraordinary.
The author's instructions and hints offered on each page are also very useful.
Worth the money!
