When I purchased this book, I asked myself three questions:
1) Does the book contain patterns that I will knit? The answer is yes.
2) Will the book serve as a good resource? Again, the answer is yes.
3) Are the patterns easy to follow? Yes, again.
I trust Interweave Press. While this is a book for intermediate knitters and beyond, I think it has a good selection of patterns to choose from.
If you like simple clothes and shapes, this is a great book. But I'd recommend paging through it first to make sure it's right for your bookshelf.
I look forward to using this book well into the future. Really glad I bought it!
Sweaters often scare us, especially when you consider the amount of time they take and your experience level. There are so many places where things can go wrong. No matter how perfect your gauge swatch, it is possible that the gauge you get in your swatch may vary on the actual garment. Will the completed sweater look good on the wearer? Will the person who receives it actually take care of and wear it? With all that said you still want to make a sweater, so you then pick a pattern or a book of patterns that appeal to you. Simple Style has classic looking sweaters, with simple techniques and a large variety of sizes, from finished size 30 inches or 76 cm. to 50 inches round or 127 cm.
Having a pattern book with many sizes makes it a versatile book because of the amount of use you can potentially get out of it. In addition, the classic patterns will not go out of style quickly. Finally, simple, fitted, fashionable patterns also allow the designer within us to experiment and make changes.Read more ›

Nice book. This has great sweater patterns with concise instructions. It tells what weight yarn which is always better than just the brand to use.Published 18 months ago by C. Barnes

I have many of Ann Budd's knitting books and really like them. Don't think I like this one as much as others I have. But there are several items that I'll probably make. Read morePublished on January 10, 2010 by Re Naves
