My favorite knitting patterns book. EVER.,
This review is from: Twinkle's Big City Knits: 31 Chunky-Chic Designs (Hardcover)
I've been waiting for a book like this to come out for a long time! Finally, cute, chic designs fresh off the runway for me to make! Ms. Chia delivers pattern after beautiful pattern in this heavy book. I've already made three projects from it: the Balthazar Vest, Aspen Hat, and Best Friend Cardigan - with a few more projects in the works. I understand what the other reviewers are saying about the limited sizes, however, I'm a petite woman so I've had no problems with the sizing whatsoever (no offense, this is a review for me only). I would have given this book a 5-star rating if not for the plethora of errors throughout the patterns. I strongly urge purchasers of this book to check the Classic Elite website for errata updates.

Help!! I can't decide on what size of the Best Friend Cardigan to make! I genearlly wear a size 6/8 on top. So do I make the medium or large? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I am a 38 bust but slim. Had to frog the hoodi in a large - too big! HTH

If you were actually able to knit the Best Friend Cardigan can you explain the section for "Divide Body"? The instructions make no sense to me and the numbers are all off. Thanks.
