3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment 31 July 2012
My first project is the Phone Box which I started this evening and the stitching diagram is not the same as the photo. I then had to get a magnifying glass to look at the photo of the final article to work out what the stitch count should be. This is a simple proofing fault - goodness knows if there are any more. I might expect inconsistencies in free patterns but not a book I paid for.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shame it's a copy of Stitch London 1 Jun 2012
By E. Toft
A nice book, but not a patch on the original london knitting pattern book - Stitch London by Lauren O Farrell. Much of the same ideas in this book, but Stitch London has a nicer layout, brilliant writing style and original ideas, plus it includes a knit your own pigeon kit in the book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Knit London 16 May 2012
This book is so cute. A perfect gift for a visitor as a souvenir or why not knit up tower bridge for someone who is missing London. The book mixes the nostalgia of the routemaster bus and red telephone boxes with modern icons the Gerkin and the London eye, so their is a pattern to suit all tastes. I love the reference to the tube that runs through out the book and my favourite pattern has to be Tower bridge. The only disappointment is that their is not a pattern for the little pigeon perhaps he will make an appearance in another Emma king book

1.0 out of 5 stars would have preferred more smaller patterns 13 Feb 2014
Looked forward to getting this book, but found there was too many "big" projects and not enough of the smaller ones.
Also the London Eye seemed a bit too complicated, was disappointed with the Guardsman, not enough details.
Would have preferred to see patterns such as Pearly Kings, etc
