4.0 out of 5 stars In some ways better than her Knitters' Handbook 26 April 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I think that this book is better than the Knitter's Handbook because she has a good selection of pattern stitches. Yes, she is very opinionated about things--but then so is the Zimmerman crowd--in this book she delves a lot more into silhouettes and what is best for your figure type. If you ignored the knitting aspects, this could be used as an additional reference on pattern drafting. The color plates of the garments are pretty good, although all she gives you is yarn, pattern silhouette, type of collar, and stitches used. Not much to go on if you are used to detailed instructions!
This is not really a book for beginners--her writing style and the editing makes it difficult to understand sometimes (just like the Knitter's Handbook) However, because she shows in detail how to calculate ease allowances and so forth, it will be a valuable future reference, especially for those who make more fitted knitwear.
The empty graph paper sheets from 1.1 to 2.0 are a big bonus in this book as well, and even though we now have computer programs that will print custom graph paper, it is great for those of us who need to print out a sheet or two on the copy machine for travel. I wish this book were back in print as well!

By Linda Montgomery - Published on Amazon.com

Another knitting book that I wanted for my own library. I checked it our from my local knitting guild and made the decision to purchase my own copy. If anyone wanted to design his/her own sweater, this book would be a good place tos tarat.
5.0 out of 5 stars Informative 5 Jun. 2016
By L Pellicane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Very good information, even for the seasoned knitter. This may be an older book, but all of the information is relevant to the craft.
