an entire wardrobe of jumpers,
This review is from: Vintage Knits: 30 stunning knitwear designs inspired by original postwar patterns (Paperback)
Granted the sizes are s,m,l, but as a 5'5", 130 lb person I think they're great. I've made 4 jumpers (though made all of them longer than she calls for) and I wear them constantly. Some of the patterns are quite simple (stocking stitch with k1p1 rib) and suitable for a beginner, though that's not stated.
The foundation patterns she's used (set in sleeves, tapered waist) make it easy to mix and match elements once you get a basic understanding of how she designs. Since I've become a better knitter I refer to this book often when designing my own knits.
While the criticisms of the other reviewers do stand (no level indication and small sizes), I still find it an excellent knitting book that's becoming a foundation of my wardrobe.
