Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I hate this book. It says classic styles for the modern knitter which I think is misleading. I was hoping for truly classic patterns for today and it has styles that are not based on classics nor are they wearable for ages over 35 -40 unless they work out because many are sleeveless. Designed for very young. I wanted to sit down and knit at once and found nothing at all suitable - no cardigans and no jumpers that are not "trendy". Very, very disappointing. I do not recommend this book.

Whoever gave these women a book deal should be shot. It looks like they (or test knitters) didn't meet deadlines so they have half finished sweaters ('yeah, all those unwoven in ends as a design feature? Gimme a break! The sweater looks absolutely ridiculous') and horrendous color combinations ('Let's take the ugliest colors we can find in the clearance bin and mash them together!') I felt embarassed for the models in the photos. I bet they were thinking 'What on earth is this crap they've put on me?' Hope they don't judge knitters by this book alone. Ugh.

Classic styles? If you were a circus clown, maybe. If you don't believe me, check out the book from your local library and gawk for yourself.
