4 out of 5 stars

I got this book fairly recently and am working on my first sweater for myself(!!!) I'm doing the "Remington Cardigan," and I just love it. My only critiques are that I think some of the stitch counts on the medium size are a little off (but it doesn't matter much, as one of the instances was on a bind-off row), and some of the directions could be clearer, but it's not so bad that I couldn't figure it out. I love how modern and yet classic the patterns in this book are. Overall, I give this book 4/5 stars. The patterns are gorgeous and so wearable, but there are a few small problems with the pattern writing (which, granted, could just be reader misinterpretation, so I'm not docking them much for it.) ;) I would definitely recommend this book to fellow knitters.
