I think this book offers some great ideas and patterns for classic garments.

Some of the items I'd love to make or adapt (see the uploaded images)...

Classic aran-style and also plaid sweaters.
Knitted raglan joins and ribbing on a crocheted sweater.
Beads and mohair in a feminine retro style.

Cute retro baby blanket and sweater.
Two glittery yarns make an interesting cardigan and scarf for evening.
Filet crochet beach coverup. (How about sparkly yarn for evening?)

Bobbles and stripes pullover with knitted ribbing.
Interesting stitch pattern shawl collar cardigan.
Knitted ribbing on a nice basic striped crocheted cardigan.

Nice men's sweater with diagonal detailed stitch pattern.
Basic two-rectangle top with one back seam and knitted ribbing.
Bobbles and stripes classic vest.
Adorable filet thread blouse with cap sleeves.

These come in standard sizing, meaning no plus sizes for ladies. But some of the techniques are easily translated to your own projects, such as the nice plaids or using knitted ribbing on your crocheted items. There are many little techniques which make this a valuable addition to my library.

Regarding some other reviews, I happen to appreciate the knitted ribbing shown on SOME of the items (some others are crocheted ribbing), since I just learned to knit and crochet. If a knitted ribbing gives me a great finish, why shouldn't I use it if I can do it?

Knitters have been crocheting their edges for years. Nobody seems to complain about that in a knitting book. Since both techniques (crocheted or knitted ribbing) are detailed within various patterns in this book, one should simply use whichever one most feels comfortable doing. That's what I plan to do. And I'll adapting crochet to knitted ribbing more often too.

I'll be keeping this title for a long time.

I bought this for my daughter as she does not knit, so far she loves what is in the book for patterns.

There are so many classic styles, and lots of stitch variations here. Of all the sweater books i own, this is probly my favorite. It teaches a skill with every sweater, and these little tutorials will help any beginner become an expert quickly.
