Love this book....and red isn't even my favorite color! The patterns are beautiful, and a great cause too. There are several patterns I can't wait to try!

Ok, so a bit of a disclaimer: I work for Jimmy Beans Wool. Laura Zander is our owner and this is our book. It includes patterns designed by our very own 'beans', ('employees' for you non-initiates!) Kristen and Jeanne.

I'm usually not one for pattern books because often there are only 1 or 2 patterns that I like and would actually knit. I usually prefer to buy my patterns individually instead. This book would have been different for me even if I didn't work for JBW -- most of the patterns are st

Such an awesome pattern book! Terrific designers and very enticing things to knit included in this beautifully presented book. I will definitely be making a number of them.

Some good-looking patterns (though the proof is in the pudding, and I haven't yet knit any of them), but there was entirely too many pages devoted to 'eat a healthy diet and exercise'. I picked this book up for knitting patterns, not lifestyle advice. :/

This book caught my eye immediately! The photos are lovely, the patterns clear and what a selection of projects! They are by some of the world's best designers. Grab a copy today and see for yourself. You will find it a must have for your collection.

Not a whole lot of variety in style and definitely not a beginner's book but has some nice patterns.
