5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! Aug. 2 2013
It's rare for me to like more than 1 - 2 patterns in a knitting collection, but in this case, I can't wait to knit all 5. Jane Richmond has put together an enticing collection of 5 classic patterns that are well-written and use beautiful yarns. The photography makes you feel like you're on Vancouver Island as you flip through the book, and is worth the price of the book in and of itself!

Love this!!

Just bought my copy of ISLAND and I must say. It is a gorgeous book.
The photography is beautiful! It reminds me of a "coffee table book"
The Designs are fantastic! Simple and elegant style. Classic Jane Richmond...
The Patterns are very well written and easy to follow.
I've knitted up a couple of Jane Richmond's designs.
And now I simply can't wait to knit everything is this book.

Love it! Love it! Love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Island Dream Jan. 5 2013
By Agador - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've been a Jane Richmond fan for a while so when I heard she had a book coming out I knew I would be buying myself a little holiday gift.

The book itself is styled beautifully, with dreamy shots of knitting out in nature. The patterns are a collection of a hat, fingerless gloves, scarf, cowl and cardigan. You will need to have some knitting under your belt to be able to make these, I'd say an advanced beginner would be fine.

I really love how she chose to write up the cardigan pattern. It is written so you fill in a space with the numbers for your size, which you chose from a chart, thus eliminating the awful problem of following the wrong size. This is genius! Knitters will appreciate what a great idea this is!

The patterns are clearly written, which is always true of all Jane's work.If you'd like to see the actual designs that are featured in the book, take a look at her website at janerichmond.com or on the knitting site ravelry.com where you can see many versions of her patterns knit up by her fans.

It's kinda hard to chose a pattern book without seeing the designs, so I'd go take a look and see if you like them. The patterns are well written and easy to follow. I'd give it two thumbs up! Going back to my knitting now and yes, it is a Jane Richmond pattern!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book Feb. 27 2014
By mkf52 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book as a gift to another knitter who I know is also a fan of Jane Richmond, and I almost didn't want to give it to her! Jane's patterns are classic with a twist, and the instructions look clear (I haven't actually knit any of them directly just read them). And, as always, the photography is terrific. If you know a knitter who likes contemporary but clean items, get them this book!
