This is a beautifully written hard bound book with many fairly easy original patterns.

What I liked about this book was that it had some very interesting projects especially the Alpaca yarn throw . I may attempt that one nice large needles! Also some small gift projects . Very handy book.

great knitting ideas that are timeless. The instructions are well written , easy to follow and allow for suggestions of types of yearns to use for your gifts. This is a classic book you must have to have in your library of "go-to" knitting musts

Very good idea book, nicely done pictures, and projects had been grouped by time involved which was a great way to present the patterns. My family members have even made unsolicited requests from this book! Very pleased I added this one to my library, and my friends and family are, too:)

This is an attractive knitting book, filled with all kinds of quick to make projects including: baby items (LOTS of those), scarves, tank tops, home decor items, packing ideas...

I'm taking off a couple of stars as I thought quite a few of the patterns were too easy to be even called an actual pattern, unless you are an absolute beginner. The leg warmers and a couple of the scarves come to mind, in this respect.

I'm also wondering now if I'd actually want to tackle any of these projects, given all the reviews that mention numerous mistakes in many of the patterns. I hate when that happens!

I am an advanced beginner knitter and when I buy a book or pattern, I expect it to be tested and correct. I don't know how these books get published when they have so many errors in them? At the very least, I think all patterns should be made by at least 2 knitters to insure that this doesn't happen. But as any knitter knows, errors seem to be a given, in most books and that is truly unfortunate and not how it should be.

I'll probably return this kindle book for a refund. Too bad but my time is limited for knitting. I don't want to be disappointed by starting a project that is going to be frustrating to make, due to errors. Not worth bothering.

I got this book because I was interested in basically one pattern. And to my surprise there were quite a few patterns that interested me and have made.

Thank God I bought the 2011 edition of this book, not the first edition that came out over 10 years ago in 2004. This is because I didn't find out until after my purchase that the original edition contained three pages of errata! Even my edition has one page of errata which I downloaded today.

I did try the Angora Baby Booties project on page 36 and thank goodness it had no mistakes in the instructions. It was my first attempt at double knitting and everything worked out just fine. It made a cute and adorable baby shower gift.

The other projects I would like to try for myself are the Cabled Purse on page 100 (as an evening bag for myself if I ever have the occasion to go out on the town), the Herringbone Poncho on page 116, and the Chevron Scarf on page 120.

This book is for people who like Real Simple magazine or the Minimalist look. My favorite knit stitch is the stockinette stitch because each stitch looks like a miniature heart. After that it is simple even ribbing such as the Leg Warmers on page 54.

There is only one woman's sweater in this book and it only goes up to a 49 inch bust, so it's not very plus size friendly. The author's photo on the back jacket cover shows she is normal sized or slender looking, maybe that's why.

I consider myself an advanced beginner because I haven't yet made my first pair of knitted socks yet. One yarn store owner told me that after I finish my first pair of socks, then I could call myself an intermediate knitter. Most of the projects in this book look easy to me.

Obviously, enough people loved the first edition of the book that they came out with another edition, addressing most of the mistakes. This usually doesn't happen in the publishing world.
