As always, this book from Debbie Bliss is beautiful enough to be a coffee table book. Gorgeous pictures (although they don't always show enough detail, a complaint that is common about Bliss books) of adorable children and real families, including Debbie Bliss's own children--I think we have watched her daughter grow up through her books. Again, the same advice I always offer when it comes to patterns by Debbie Bliss--read the whole pattern over a few times, with a more experienced knitter's input if you're a beginner, before even starting. Then read it again as you go along.
My only complaint about this book is that the cutest sweaters, of course, only come in baby and toddler sizes, although many of the others are sized for a wide age group. I'm referring to the little Scandinavian-looking jackets--one of which is pictured on the cover.

Debbie Bliss has proven to me time and time again that each of her books have incredible and timeless designs. Debbie's Family knits is no exception. It is a fabulous book, because now you can make sweaters for the whole family from the same pattern, changing the colors to suit everyone's personalities. Anyone who enjoys knitting will find new patterns that they can now make for the grownups, as well as, the kids.
I highly recommend this book. It is a must have for any knitter.

Debbie Bliss has produced a very nice book on knitting for the entire family. Her designs for children are still more stunning than those for adults, but there are several nice men's and women's sweaters here. Instructions are simple. Worth owning.

I really like this book. The designs are beautiful and the photography is gorgeous (although I would agree it is not incrediblly helpful to the serious knitter trying to follow the pattern. I just love the look of Debbie Bliss' designs. But I have some complaints. The prevalence of designs intended for Rowan brand denim yarn and Rowan cotton glace yarn, for example, is somewhat annoying. It is impossible to find Rowan brand in my area. Apparently, non-Rowan denim yarns do not shrink up nearly as much as Rowan's does, as I have discovered the hard way. And I am still searching for a yarn I can use in place of the cotton glace. Also, the designs are just plain huge. I made a sweater for my 2 year old that I ended up giving to my 5 year old--and it's very big on him! I wised up and made my 9 year old niece a sweater supposedly sized for a 6-8 year old. Frankly, I think I could wear it, it's that big--but it will be pleasantly loose on my niece. I hope. I've spent a lot of time complaining. You'd wouldn't think that it is my favorite pattern book and has been on my bedside shelf for about 8 months straight, but it is and it has. It is a beautiful book. You will look at the pictures and wish you could make everything in it. It's not easy to use. But in the end, after you make all adjustments needed (pay close attention to gauge, and the measurements given in the patterns), you will be the proud creator of a sweater that will earn you many compliments--and make all the members of your family request ones for themselves.

The book cover is nice, the pictures are nice, but the desgins are very disappointing.
Even though most of the designs can be knitted for the whole family.. they don't appeal to a young adult like me.
The sizes for adults are all large and baggy. They don't fit well at all! They are just supersized version of toddler sweater.
I think Debbie bliss should just stick to designing children's wear. Please don't add more rows and stitches to children wear's pattern and call it adult wear.
