This book, like Big Knits, has some really nice patterns. Many are easily adjustable lengthwise, and some are adjustable width-wise as well if you have some knitting experience.
Most, however, would require some serious adjustment if you wanted to knit them in a smaller size, because the larger motifs in these sweaters go completely from side to side (as opposed to the sweaters in Big Knits, where the larger motifs in some patterns had at least a couple inches on each side of plain bordering to work with), and it would be easy to distort the picture composition (unless you don't mind chopping off part of it).
Don't let the above discourage you, however--the larger picture motifs would also look great done up as a baby blanket, or afghan, or as a pillow.
Good book for anyone's knitting library.

Creative FunReviewed in the United States on February 16, 2015
Haven't tried any of the patterns yet. I bought this as a follow up to my purchase of Big Knits by the same designer. Happy to have these interesting and fun patterns to work with. Love the creativity. Thank you.

A little more flashy than the previous but just great.
