Reviews - What do customers think about Jackets-For Work & Play (Best of Knitter's Magazine series)?

Great work jackets!  Jan 7, 2008
I was very impressed with this book-- it has several designs that I plan to make. My work is fairly relaxed business wear, but this book has several choices that you could wear even in a more dressy environment. It also seems to run the gamut of beginner knits to more challenging designs, including one that uses 3 colors to simulate a woven tweed. Very nice! While I can't speak to how well-written these particular patterns are, I do have another Best of Knitter's book whose patterns are very easy to follow. Overall, a great book, especially for the price!
Jackets, coats, and even a suit are presented in a lovely gathering  Dec 2, 2007
The Best of Knitter's JACKETS FOR WORK AND PLAY packs in nearly thirty projects for a range of jackets from work jackets to casual and dressy clothes. Jackets, coats, and even a suit are presented in a lovely gathering which pairs full-page color photos with step-by-step knitting directions.
Jackets-For Work & Play  May 14, 2007
Don't get discouraged by the unattractive yarns used in the pictures. Look at the design and construction. I have plans to knit a couple of the patterns, which I'm sure will be quite satisfactory when using more pleasing yarns.
great styles  May 4, 2007
I love this book. It is hard to know which jacket to try first. The styles should appeal to a broad range of ages.
a nice jacket mix  Jan 9, 2007
I've purchased quite a few of the xrx 'best of' or 'knitter's dozen' books. It's so much easier than sorting through all my back issues of Knitter's. I love the mix of styles and techniques, and the fact that they've 're-knit' some of the older patterns with new [available]yarns. I do wish they would include the original publication info. And it would be nice if the index included thumbnail pix of the projects.
