Synopses & Reviews
Kaffe's Classics is a collection of 24 sweaters and one afghan, all fun to knit in the author's trademark vibrant colors and rich patterns. The sweater shapes are basic without being boring, and unlikely to go out of fashion. Aimed at intermediate and advanced knitters, the book encourages readers to use their own variations on the designs.
More sophisticated designs and vivid colors are featured in this collection of 24 sweaters and one afghan from a master of knitting. 200 color photos. 76 illustrations, 45 in color.
