"To answer the burning question - yes, the Central Park Hoodie is in this book (sized from 32-60"). Plus there's a lot of other good stuff. I'm not a regular reader of Knitscene so a lot of the patterns in here I'd never seen. All of the patterns have been published in the magazine, but if you don't have them all this is a great eclectic collection of patterns. There are extras too, articles - I really enjoyed the article about how Knitscene uses sweater trends and how to wear them. There's a sprinkling of profiles of Knitscene's favorite designers and I never get tired of reading about designers' inspirations. I found at least 8 things I would make in this book - Mathew Gagny's Heleborus Yoke cardigan and Cecily Glowik MacDonald's Michaelmas Mitts top my list." - Jillian Moreno, Knitty.com
"This book is a fun one. Twenty classic, stylish patterns for sweaters, vests, shawls, hats and socks. I want to make every single one of them, from the Oscilloscope Shawl to the Equinox Raglan to the Central Park Hoodie." - Austin-American Statesman
"Written by the author of Knitting Plus and the editor of Knitscene, this book features the magazine's 20 most popular styles." - Knitting at Large

Well written and understandable patterns.
Too bad- this book has left me so disappointed in Interweave Knits for publishing so many errors in patterns that have been already published in their magazine!
The Best of Knitscene is dedicated to the best patterns in the last five years of this knitting magazine.
