This review is from: Jackets-For Work & Play (Best of Knitter's Magazine series) (Paperback) If you're a pattern fanatic like I am,
this book is a must. Knitter's always has some of the greatest designs and they do not disappoint with this book. While most of
the patterns are above beginner level, they shouldn't be considered to be off limits for beginners. It's a perfect inspiration and
starting point for new knitters who would like to take the plunge into something other than scarves. Basic jacket structures helps
new knitters understand how they are put together and removes some of the scary mystery. Intermediate knitters will enjoy it
because of the intriguing designs and advanced knitters will find it enjoyable because the patterns are adaptable to personal
creativity. The pattern/color combinations and designs add zing for everyone.

This review is from: Jackets-For Work & Play (Best of Knitter's Magazine series) (Paperback) 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.

Great work jackets!, January 6, 2008 By jld "jld" (Champaign, IL)
This review is from: Jackets-For Work & Play (Best of Knitter's Magazine series) (Paperback) 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!
