Happy Happy Aug 30, 2008
I was very happy with the nice selection of patterns. I would have preferred them to start with one size smaller.
Cable Vision Sweater Pattern Jul 22, 2008
I started the sweater and went to the chart for the cables. The text and chart are NOT for the pictured sweater. Does anyone have an errata for this book. Family Circle (books?) has been taken over by Leisure Arts and infor on corrections is not available. Can anyone help?
Family Circle Easy Plu-Size Knits Apr 13, 2008
I purchased this book as I really liked the sweater on the cover. When I received this book, I was very diappointed as the sweater only comes in X large and XX large, upon going through this book, I noticed that most of the patterns were in smaller sizes. I would not recommend this book as a plus size knitting book.
great buy Apr 7, 2008
lots of good pattern, my only negative is that the patterns are sometimes broken up so that only part of them are with the initial page (the rest are at the back of the book) Would have preferred for each patten to be together completely. Nice patterns
knitting........ Feb 9, 2008
I thought this book would have different things to knt AND crochet. It didn't. Everything in it was to be knitted with a few ideas of adding crocheting for decoration. There might have been a purse to crochet but since it didn't interest me I don't remember for sure. Plus-size sweaters would have been fun to make and practical in my case. I ended up returning the book as it was a great disappointment.
