Having read the other reviews here I feel moved to redress the balance with some words of praise. This is a knitwear book entitled Classics - and that is exactly what you get. I have knitted a few of the patterns already (the 'mademoiselle' jacket, deep-v sweater and the kelly cardigan) and found the instructions very clear. I am delighted with the results. Yes, I could go to Jigsaw, or Toast et al and buy similar garments, saving myself a bit of time and effort; but then, one could argue that about every cookery book on the market - why bake a cake when you can just buy one and save on the washing up?
In short, this is a lovely collection of highly wearable knitwear designs, beautifully photographed and styled, with clear and accurate knitting patterns.
