Thankfully I got this from the library (I try not to buy a book unless I've checked it out a few times first).
I'm giving this book 3 stars because even though the knitting patterns might be great (I don't know, I don't knit) they really should just make it a knitting book and get it over with. The subtitle states "50 Knit and Crochet Projects" but what they really meant to say is "46 Knit Projects and 4 Crochet Ones Thrown In There So We Could Get Crocheters To Buy The Book". I'm not kidding, there were a total of FOUR crochet sweaters in the entire book (I counted). Of the four crochet projects, two are very similar in look (big, open holes, simple sweaters). Another is a granny square sweater that's nice looking and the fourth is a really nice sweater I might try to make so I might get something out of it after all. Still, if I had paid for this book I'd be mighty ticked off.
I also think that if you are having a book with knitting and crochet, you should have an easy way to find one or the other. An index would be nice, or have the crochet in one section, knit in another. Instead, all the sweaters are listed under their themes (Easy Does It, Tropical Coolers, etc) with knit on one page, crochet on the next, knit on the next 20, etc.
I'm sure it's a lovely book for beginning knitters, I just think they should take out the four token crochet patterns and focus on knitting instead of trying to play both fields.
