Review by orangejulia
Stoller's second book has lots great knitting patterns for less traditional knitters. One of my big complaints was the excessive poncho/capelet patterns (which I feel are too trendy to want in a book). Over all the patterns are interesting and there is a variety of difficulty levels. I enjoyed SnB more, but this was worth buying.
Review by rainwood
Yet more patterns which will be dated in five years, not destined for classics status on any knitting shelf, but a fun book which has helped renew interest in knitting, so yay!

ANother good book for beginning knitters. I recommend this book for reference purposes and not so much for the patterns.

Good patterns.Too bad the errata is as long as my face.
Review by atuinsails
I liked most of the patterns in this book, but what I found most helpful are the tips scattered through the book and the guidelines for modifying patterns. For some reason, the idea of ratios between the pattern and my actual gauge never crossed my mind until I read the beginning of this book.Kudos, Debbi Stoller!
