The Best Things About This Book
The patterns in this book are exceptionally beautiful, wearable and appealing.
This book is a visual treat! It’s really fun to browse through the pages and feast your eyes on the gorgeous sweater images, which are interspersed with intriguing nature photographs in similar colors to the sweater patterns. This gives the book a cohesive aesthetic that is quite enchanting. The book’s author took the nature photographs, and it is evident that some of them contributed inspiration for the garments’ color patterning.
I’m delighted to recommend this book to other knitting enthusiasts, particularly to knitters who would enjoy making women’s jackets and sweaters. I think this book offers an amazing value for its asking price, and if you’re looking for sweater knitting patterns, I’m positive you’ll enjoy it.
