Super 80's style sweater knitting patterns.
Lots of mohair yarn and fair-isle style knitting. There are great adult and children sizes of the same sweater if you love those papa/son or mama/daughter matching sweaters.
Seriously prepare yourself of the 1980's knits with clear charts and instructions for any level knitter.
Classic Elite yarns are used for Small, medium, large sized folks, no plus sized modifications.

This is my go to book for my favorite sweater. I learned a lot from this book. Even if you don't want to knit a garment I used several of her edgings for my own projects and designs. A wide range of sizes from children to adults.
