Number of Patterns; 30

Split of patterns: mostly women or accessories

Size Range: women small (32") to X-large (40"), though not in all patterns. Men small (38") to x-large (48")

Colour/Black & White: Colour photos

Schematics: yes for everything

Target Audience: A lot of patterns are pretty simple, beginner heading into intermediate

How to knit guide: no and the special techniques have no illustrations so if you're a beginner you might want to have a basic book nearby for clarity

Experimental/Classical/Modern: some of it is a little experimental. There's a few patterns where it encourages trying out new techniques. Overall though it's pretty Classical heading into modern. Probably won't date too badly.

Comments: This tells the story of Suzan Mischer who left her job as a president for specials and documentaries at CBS to have children and then decided that her heart was in becoming a knit shop owner, and not just any knit shop but a knit cafe. These are some designs that came about due to this shop.

Several of the designs are quite simple and some require some maths to work out how many stitches and how to adapt for different yarns. All of the yarns used she stocks herself but are pretty well known. There's probably something for everyone in this book, particularly a beginner who is beginning to stretch themselves.

Buy/Borrow: I'd borrow first to see how it appeals. It's a lighthearted book and quite a fun read.
