---This book focuses on seven simple things that Fisher has found to be the most common causes for sloppy results in sweaters. Seven simple things a manageable, tangible number that makes this book both approachable and extremely helpful. She doesn't attempt to teach you everything you may ever need to know about knitting. Just seven things that will produce results.
---This clean, well-conceived book never strays from its purpose. Fisher makes a reasonable promise and she delivers on that promise. Read this book, and practice each new technique using the practice baby cardigan pattern, and you will gain knowledge that will make your next sweaters look better. Simple.
---Her clean, factual writing style is infused with warmth and encouragement. She wants you to learn new options and understand why they work, but she never says, "You must do it this way." She concludes, "The real bottom line is that in your sweater, you get to decide what looks best and what works for you." It's all about choices, and she gives you plenty.
