There is also a section of knitting tips and techniques which I found very helpful - some are specifically for the larger figure but Ms Noble also includes a really useful method for making a neck without holes at the picked-up edge.
Ms Noble describes the designs as "classic chic" but uses texture and colour to transcend the dullness which I have always assumed went with that phrase.
The only drawback is that the yarns stated are (understandably) sourced in the US - of course subsitution can easily be made, although the specific yarns used are gorgeous.

Cons: The author has a preference for "fuzzy" yarns like chenille and mohair that I don't share. The sweaters all have a rectangular, straight-up-and-down line that doesn't work for me (I'm a "pear.") Also, all the styles have dropped shoulders, and the sleeves seem to drape badly, with a lot of fabric bunching under the arm. It looks lumpy and maybe even uncomfortable. Lastly, the subtitle is "Knitting Designs for Real Women." Sorry to quibble, but slender women are "real," too.
