3.0 out of 5 stars colourful but complicated! 30 Dec 2010
By sally tarbox TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Big book of Kaffe Fassett's designs for men's/women's and kids' knitwear, creatively photographed in such places as Morocco and Key West. There's lots of full page spreads illustrating the jumpers, which are pretty ambitious in terms of working with many different colour wools simultaneously. But they are certainly attractive, and I completed one in multi-coloured cables (after a lot of tangles!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for the meek of heart, but worth a look! 31 Mar 2000
By mcraeak - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I had heard a great many people say how much they liked Fassett's use of color, and so I found this book and explored. I'm glad I did that before I bought it: I have a very different set of sensibilities when it comes to color than the authors of Family Album.
I've given it a relatively high score, though, for the nice lines of their clothing and the clear instructions. I am just not the right knitter for their designs.
There's nothing here for anyone below the level of an adventurous intermediate knitter (IMHO), but the book itself would be great inspiration to increase your skill if you like their style - great pictures and good-looking models make this almost a coffee table book.
The patterns and colors are too overstated for my taste, but it's very clear to me that they love their subject and they give good value in the book (over thirty designs for about $20 on this site).

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Most Beautiful Knitting Books I Own 3 Mar 2009
By Bonnie Brody - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is an incredibly beautiful book as are all of Kaffe Fassett's books. It is as much an art book as it is a knitting book. It is filled with luscious photographs of flowers, fields, designs and natural objects which complement the beautiful knitted projects.

The patterns are quite complex. I am an experienced knitter and I think I might go blind trying to knit one of these patterns.

I look at this book over and over in order to draw ideas and inspiration, and for its beauty.
