5.0 out of 5 stars Good, classic patterns to last you a lifetime 26 Sep 2006
Almost all the patterns in this book are good, if you are looking for classic, wearable items in a range of yarn thicknesses (not all 4 ply!). I particularly liked the cardigan patterns, of which there are many. There are also patterns for men here, though only a few. The patterns are very 'French resistance', and the styling too is evocative of the 1940s. There is a range of designers represented here too. The Kaffe Fassett pattern is one of the few 'duds' in the book in my opinion - yet another multicoloured patchwork style man's jumper - 1980s vintage, I think.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected 29 Oct 2007
This book was a disappointment for me!! Only one or two wearable items in my opinion (the mens patterns are awful!!) Most are a variation on a theme so chances are if you already own any rowan books you may have a very similar pattern already!! Nicely presented and photographed but actual knit content left a lot to be desired!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book 11 Nov 2011
This book I have used three times - the patterns are so nice and the sizes are correct. No measuring needing. All result ended up perfectly. I highly recommend all patterns from Rowan and especially this book.

Vintage Style is like most Rowan books, filled with stylish European designs. I am a man who knits and I bought the book for the Jarrett jacket.

There weren't as many patterns that I would actually consider knitable (personally). I have had this book for a year and still haven't knit anything in it.
