Classic, feminine, beautiful, wearable to work if one desires, functional designs fill the pages. There isn't a single item in here about which I thought, "hmmm - maybe if I were 20 years younger/20 pounds lighter/or 20 times hotter, I might wear that." And even my knitting daughter who IS younger lighter/hotter by factors of 20 found the designs gorgeous and desirable, too. THe layout of the book is lovely, patterns flow right from the gorgeous photos, and SO Much information is given, not only on yarn and needles and gauge, but also on what size was photographed, how much ease the piece was designed around, and so on, which will make choosing a size a snap, and a properly fitting garment the result of your time investment.
If you love beautiful knitwear design, you need this book. It's that simple.
I still consider myself a novice - have only been knitting for a year and I'm just getting started with more difficult pieces. This book is not for beginners, but there is a range of difficulty to the patterns, so you can absolutely progress through it, starting with something a little simpler like the shrug or a wrap and working your way up to the adorable dresses and lacework.
Other than the yarn issue I think the patterns are beautiful, classic, and very fashion forward. It's a great book to browse and be inspired by and a few of the patterns appear to be appropriate for a beginner although many would be a challenge to even a more experienced knitter. If I can ever find yarn I plan to knit several of the items in this book.
