Tight fitting patterns for small skinny people.
That stated, there are quite of few really cute patterns that I'll be trying out as there are larger sizes added to each pattern. Thank you author and editor!

This book is exactly what it advertises -- an interesting assortment of attractive and feminine knit patterns. It's well laid out and easy to read. The patterns appear to be well-written, though I have no yet knit very many of them. The pictures are very good and give a good idea of what the finished knit will look like from several angles in most cases.

Some of the patterns in this book were gorgeous, obviously very time-consuming items. The book had a nice design and all the knitted items had good photographs that illustrated what they would look like. I just didn't find anything in this book that I wanted to knit and so that's why it got this rating. I'd probably recommend though.

Some nice designs in here. Made one up and it looked good and was easy to follow.

The reason I gave it as many stars as I did was because the garmets are stunning, HOWEVER, all the patterns are crap. The publisher should not have printed it until the problems in the patterns were corrected. They completly had to re-write the seeded-cables cardigan and even then teh chart is still wrong on one of the higher rows.

Liked the patterns in this book so well I bought it twice (without knowing it) and gave the extra copy to my best friend, who also loves it.

I'm in the process of making the seeded cables cardigan right now :) It will take me forever as I am officially ADD when it comes to knitting :)

Modern and gorgeous patterns! Easy to follow instructions. I'm about halfway through knitting the Sayuri sweater.

Very awesome, wearable patterns in this book. Almost everything is circular-knit on circular needles.

Many interesting designs but at least one project uses yarn that may be hard to find.
Library book-- I'd like to make the lacey camisole and the spiral socks.
