Format: Paperback
Lovely book, easy to read and well laid out. The patterns are well written and categorised so it's easy to find exactly what you want. The photography is great with large images of the designs and lots of close ups of details, and I also like the techniques section which has diagrams and explanations and 'how to' instructions pertinent to the various projects.
As well as some stunning ladies designs, lots of 'wardrobe staples' and some new ideas, there are also plenty of patterns for men and children too, something that's often missing from collections. It was a refreshing change see my son leafing through the book and putting post it notes on the designs he wanted making.

This book, although from the US, is fantastic for knitters of all levels. You get 100 patterns for the whole family so it is immense value for money. I could easily make several, but my first will be a really stunning moss stitch jacket and I haven't seen anything similar to this design in any UK knitting pattern books. It's worth reading the patterns carefully as they are written for the US market so some of the terms are slightly different, but don't let this put you off. I would highly recommend this book for all knitters. It will keep you going with patterns for a long time.

3.0 out of 5 stars some interesting cable sweaters 20 Jan. 2011
By M. Poller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love the first two Classic Elite books that came out several years ago so like others I bought this one hoping something would appeal to me. The best ones use cables and mainly are from Kathy Zimmerman like her kinono coat. The Entangled cable pullover is quite nice from Andi Clark. Most of the pictures show very homemade type sweaters that just don't look nice such as too big children's sweaters. However for someone just looking for something standard which has a schematic and charts where needed, this could be useful. A lot of the sweaters are really plain and as someone wrote, can be easily found for free on the internet. I don't know if Classic Elite ever published separately any of these sweaters as I've never come across them. In the back there's an index and also a list of the sweaters giving the designer. The printing is good and the book which is an overlarge paperback seems to have a good sturdy binding. I think this book would be best for libraries where it will be found on the shelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Book for the Avid Knitter 18 Sept. 2014
By Kathy Pearson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A great variety of things to knit. This book offers for every pattern a "Equivalent Yarn" recommendation, stating the type I.e. Worsted, DK, Fingerling etc, and the weight number that you associate with the same yarn thickness for knitters not familiar with the jargon. This book is sectioned into chapters all color coded, for example the green tabbed pages are the men's knits, 16 in all. Each pattern has the skill level clearly noted, and not understated, in my opinion. The charts are large, and there is schematic for every sweater. The children's section contains 25 patterns to fit sizes 2 through 10. The book ends with the accessories, 16 patterns with 9 of them classified as beginner or easy. 39 absolutely gorgeous woman sweater patterns starts out the book. Several patterns have a duplicate for a child's size (not in the count above). Simply put there is too much to choose from but you will enjoy pouring over the pages trying to decide.
5.0 out of 5 stars Knitting book 31 Jan. 2014

I love the book! The pattern I wanted is very easy to follow! There are so many more patterns I would like to knit! What I really like is that with each pattern they list substitution yarn requirements, so you don't have a problem if you can't find, or don't want to use the yarn they used! I would recommend this book to everybody because there is such a variety of patterns for adults and children!
5.0 out of 5 stars Beatiful patterns, beautiful book 20 Mar. 2014
By christina - Published on Amazon.com

This is a gorgeous knitting book. Many beautiful patterns for the whole family, clearly presented and easy to follow. I especially appreciate the authors giving required yarn totals for substitute yarn which is the first thing one needs to know after gauge and taks a lot of hunting and conversion work - if you can find hte suggested yarn info. The book is beautiful on its own; being practical and easy to read in addition to all the beautiful patterns is an added bonus. It's also a great value considering how many patterns they stuffed into this book for her, him, and kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic designs 10 Mar. 2011
By D. Stewart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am probably as old as most of your mothers (for the ones that wanted new designs). It is impossible to pick up a knitting book today that will have patterns for a 60ish woman who is small in stature but slightly overweight. This book offes designs that can be made to suit young and old, as changing a few things will make the patterns fit the younger generation, but it starts with the classic designs for those of us who cannot not have the fit the younger women wear today. I love it.
