Most knitters create garments for someone else, usually a family member. With this beautiful collection of sweaters from knitwear designer Melissa Leapman, knitters will find projects to delight everyone on their gift list. Each chapter has a basic design that has been interpreted into different sweaters for adults and children. Instead of taking one sweater and changing the size, Melissa has created different designs from a similar theme for each family member. By not merely reworking the same sweater in many different sizes, these projects will keep even the most prolific knitter engaged.

The sweaters are grouped in families, so the knitter can knit sweaters for herself, her husband, and her children that are all variations on a theme. The designs are new and different without being too untraditional or high fashion, and they use a wide variety of stitches and techniques that will appeal to whatever the knitter is in the mood for, such as intarsia, slipped stitch patterns, gansey, and cables. There are patterns in this book for knitters of all skill levels and designs for every season and climate; knit in wool, cotton, and blended yarns. Yarn substitution information allows knitters to adapt projects for their needs and budgets.

Melissa Leapman is a widely published freelance designer of knit and crochet patterns. I especially loved the faire aisle sweater pictured on the cover. There are no more than 2 colors per row so it is not even as difficult to knit as it looks! Yet it is beautiful. She also is a popular teacher at workshops and trade shows and has been a featured guest on several television programs. I even made one in a different colorway (pinks and purples) for a niece. I knitted the sweaters in the round (the way Scandinavians do) and had no problem adapting the pattern. I think it would look great in traditional Scandinavian colors too (navy, red, et.

I love this book. I have 2 boys and it is hard to find attractive sweater patterns that they will actually not be embarrassed to wear. This book has lots of patterns that "fit the bill." I especially loved the faire aisle sweater pictured on the cover. There are no more than 2 colors per row so it is not even as difficult to knit as it looks! Yet it is beautiful. I even made one in a different colorway (pinks and purples) for a niece. I knitted the sweaters in the round (the way Scandinavians do) and had no problem adapting the pattern. I think it would look great in traditional Scandinavian colors too (navy, red, etc.).

This book also inspired me to explore my own designs and create variations of them (because this is what this author has done - created several variations of each style/pattern she designed for different ages/genders.) I consider myself an intermediate-advanced knitter.

This book offers lovely fairisle designs for the whole family. Nice variety of sweaters. Looking forward knitting some of the designs.

Not worth the money. Too dated.

Everything was great!

This is a very nice collection of sweaters that are eminently knittable, as well as being wearable by all family members-babies, children, teenagers, and men, as well as women. Melissa Leapman has designed 14 "families" of sweaters, employing just about every knitting fabric style except pictorial Intarsia (unless you count Argyles as intarsia, which I don't, since I LIKE argyles and I HATE Intarsia!)The sweaters are aimed at both the beginning and long-time knitter.
However, it wasn't until I analysed the sweaters GROUP BY GROUP that I discovered the REAL value of this book . Melissa is *very* inventive in taking a single motif or stitch pattern and using it very differently in each of 3 sweaters. She doesn't merely assign different trim, closures and necklines for each sweater. Sometimes a motif might be used as an allover pattern, then,in the next sweater used simply as a horizontal panel. Over and over, Melissa plays with the elements . The book is a nice primer of knitterly "variations on a theme", if you will. I LOVE variations in music, so I was tickled by this as well.
This book has also helped me to think outside my own box. When I get an idea for a sweater (or a cable or something) and I usually neglect to WORK THE IDEA! Then I page through this book again and am inspired by the unlimited POSSIBILITES that knitting design presents. No matter how many sweaters I end up knitting from this book (and there *are* several that I am considering), I figure the book cost me a WHOLE LOT LESS THAN A KNITTING DESIGN WORKSHOP, *and* I ended up with a hard cover, 4 color "hand-out" in the process!

I'm about to start my third sweater from this book - all done for the men in my family - while my mother is working on a vest for herself. This book is well worth the money. The patterns are easy to follow, and I had no trouble finding appropriate yarns.

Consider myself a beginner-going-on-to-intermediate-knitter, I was anxious to get this book from mail. Sadly, there isn't a lot of patterns in this book; whatever it has to offer are so repetitive and simple you might as well go buy a knitting 101 book. Luckily, I didn't just order this one pattern book and am happily starting a new project thanks-but-no-thanks not from this glamorously-packaged-with-little-to-offer book.
