Great instructions on how to knit a sweater to fit without having to follow a pattern. Includes different styles of sweaters. No basic knitting instructions, so I expect I will like this better after I learn to knit! Lovely color pictures, multiple shots of each style, urge me to learn so I can try it out.

I have never knit a sweater before buying this book. This book is very well laid out and offers information in a form and layout that does not overwhelm the first time sweater knitter. I think it is also in depth enough that experienced sweater knitters will also enjoy it. The patterns are interesting and intriguing. The explanations are very clear and accessible. I'd recommend this book to anyone who is interested in sweater knitting.
The patterns in this book were interesting, but I still felt like there was something missing from this book that would have made it better. It felt a little out-dated and I thought they could have done a better job with the pictures of the knitted items. I didn't find any patterns I wanted to knit.

*Taken from my book reviews blog:
The first section is devoted to explaining how to be sure your sweaters fit. I found the charts a bit confusing but I suspect it's because I wasn't actually knitting; just gathering information. Projects are all based on the information in the first section and unless you grasp that it would be hard to use the patterns. A good resource to revisit.
