Great classic looks collected under one cover, January 30, 2004 By Carol Peterson Hennekens (Colorado Springs, CO United
States)
This review is from: Arans & Celtics: The Best of Knitter's Magazine (Best of Knitter's Magazine series) (Paperback) The
decision for many buyers on whether to buy this lovely trade paperback may well rest on how long you've subscribed to Knitters
Magazine and just organized you are. This book is another in their series of "best of" books and it includes over 30 beautiful
sweaters. However, they only took patterns out of eight issues (16, 40,44,46,48,51,56,and 60). So, if you've subscribed since
the mid-90's (as I have) you probably own most of the patterns already. Still, I plan to keep my copy for the sheer convenience
of having so many patterns in one place and the knowledge that all the quirks should be fixed for these often complex patterns.If
redundancy isn't an issue for you, A&C is a very appealing collection of patterns. The format is similiar to the magazine including
charts rather than line by line written instructions. There are numerous sidebars with very handy instructions. The look of the
sweaters is essentially equally divided between the traditional and...

At last, a collection from the back issues of Knitters, March 18, 2004 By Joanna Daneman (Middletown, DE USA)
           This review is from: Arans & Celtics: The Best of Knitter's Magazine (Best of Knitter's Magazine series) (Paperback)
These patterns were so popular that back issues of "Knitters Magazine" were going for quite high sums on Ebay. Now, after a
lot of begging on the part of knitters around the world, Knitters Magazine and XRX Press have collected patterns by type from
those hot issues and released them in book form. THANK YOU! Now I don't have to sift through back issues or beg copies of
friends to find certain patterns I like.There are a number of children's sweaters in the thickly-knit Aran style that are especially
appealing, and many other knits including for MEN, who are sadly neglected in many other publications. If you longed to get
your hands on some of the back issues for the Aran style knitting, this is a great resource. Note: Aran knitting is by nature
complex though not impossible. This is probably best for middling-experienced knitters who have tried patterns with crossed,
cabled and twisted patterns before. But not impossible even for a beginner who is determined. Hint:...

Very appealing designs and clear directions, May 6, 2006 By Julie "book-aholic" (Manhattan Beach, CA)
This review is from: Arans & Celtics: The Best of Knitter's Magazine (Best of Knitter's Magazine series) (Paperback) I just
finished knitting the "Sensational Shirttail" from this book, a v-neck aran cardigan. The design appears complicated and is rated
intermediate, but it was truly easy to follow the very clear instructions. Everyone who has seen it loves it and is astonished that I,
a novice knitter, actually did it all myself, and in less than three weeks! I am ready to begin others sweaters from this book, just
trying to decide what colors and types of yarn to use. Oh, another great thing about this book is that it gives you the yarn weight
used in the original pattern and the yardage, as well as the needle sizes, so you can adapt to your choice of fiber. I knitted my
sweater in a chunky weight cotton, and I couldn't be happier with it. There are so many other beautiful patterns in this book, I'm
sure it will appeal to just about every knitter.
