Plenty of patterns to choose from. Most sweaters are knit from the bottom up, comparable to a top-down sweater, but in reverse. Great tips throughout and guidance on making the designs your own. Includes EZ's percentage method, the baby surprise jacket as well as an adult version. Perhaps not enough detail for a beginning knitter.

Excellent story. Good easy patterns. Lots of top-down sweater patterns.

Wonderful autobiographical notes from Elizabeth and her daughter Meg who has followed in her footsteps. Includes the pattern for the iconic "Baby Surprise Jacket", the origami-like baby coat that looks like nothing at all until the one seam is sewn.
