4.0 out of 5 stars Just what I've been looking for!!, 28 Sept. 2011
By 
This review is from: Little Red in the City (Paperback)
I got my copy of Little Red last night - a pre requested birthday gift from my husband (who thankfully has embraced buying me knitting based gifts!)

The book is fabulous - its a mass of information, set out in a way that allows you to follow it through step by step, or dive into it as a reference. The patterns, whilst not all to my personal taste, show a great range of shapes and this is the point - you aren't necessarily going to buy this book just for the patterns - your buying it for the ability to adjust those patterns, and then be able to use the skills you've learnt to adjust other patterns. I'm probably only going to knit 1 or 2 of the 7 patterns in there (Angustora is beautiful!!) but its worth the cover price just as a reference book.

I love the fact that you can get digital copy for free so you can print copies to keep so as not to ruin your book by carting it in your bag, and print multiple of the 'fill in your measurements' charts for all the people you knit for - genius!!

My only criticism of the book is that whilst I like the look of the handwritten style font which is used for titles and diagrams there does come a point where there is too much of it - and similarly for hand drawn diagrams that look a little messy - some are fine - all not so good. Similarly there is a lot of use of paragraphs where bullets would have been better for a book that is primarily for reference - thats the only reason I took it from 5 stars to 4. The actual content is brilliant.

Our new knitting group will be devouring this one over the winter!
