Format: Paperback
What makes Kaffe Fassett's books so inspiring is his use of colour, his 'go for it!' attitude and his passion for knitting. Although this is a little dated from the style point of view - lots of 80s shapes - it is still a worthy addition to any knitter's library.

The patterns are easy to follow - he doesn't go in for complicated intarsia, virtually all designs are only two colours a row although they may look way more difficult, and there is a lot of 'nuts and bolts' information for inexperienced knitters. As long as you can cast on, do stocking stitch, and cast off then you'll be able to complete these patterns. The charts are excellent - good for using in other (more modern!) shaped designs and this is why I think his book is still relevant today. His designs, whether delicious poppies in twenty colours, or zig zag stripes, or huge damask flowers, have not dated - buy this book along with Ann Budd's 'A Knitter's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns' (or use your own favourite basic shape patterns) and create something unique and wonderful!

I am not a huge fan of Kaffe Fassett knitting patterns but all his books are so beautiful to look at and inspiring that they are more than worth their cost. Even though I am not a big fan of Kaffe I still generally like at least one pattern from each of his books.

THis has the most amzing photography one expects from Kaffe and was the book that kicked off his career so is a must have for any Kaffe fan and anyone looking to design their own knitwear or any clothing. Fans of colourwork should buy this inspirational book

I bought this book because it was cheap and I was curious. It has been a knitting revelation. Although some of the designs are 1980s inspired there is plenty of room to deviate from the patterns and concoct something extremely original and personal. Using Intarsia and Fairisle techniques it encourages the knitter to get creative with palette and style. I was previously quite a safe knitter but now I have the confidence to go off piste and create art that feels good to wear and everyone comments positively on my creations. Hard work but well worth it, especially with the todays multi tone yarns of today.

It's retro knitting, it's glorious design, ikt's magnificent colour, it's Kaffe. He's always a bit light on actual patterns so not for inexperienced knitters unless you have a lot of confidence.

Lovely retro book - I bought this as a kind of magazine just to read but might even attempt some of the patterns
