4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and wearable Modern Classics, 8 Aug 2008
This review is from: The Best of Interweave Knits (Paperback)
This is a lovely book, the designs are best described as modern classics. Each design is a modern interpretation of a particular stitch or type of knitting, with colourwork, fairisle, cables and lace all represented. There are lovely jumpers that the man in your life would be happy to wear; scarf and bag designs as well as ladies jumpers, cardigans, tanks and simple summer tops, plus two must knit shawls - the beautiful Icarus shawl by Miriam Felton, and the Forest Path Stole by Faina Letoutchaia. It's worth getting the book just for the shawls.

There are no sock designs or knits for children. The sizes go up to a 50" bust for many of the designs, but the designs have no bust or waist shaping so are less attractive to the super curvy.

The technical articles are excellent, something for the beginner and the advanced knitter. The knits themselves cater for the same range of skills. The book itself represents excellent value compared to the cost of buying individual patterns or a couple of magazines. My copy is already well thumbed.
