Kim Hargreaves  Vintage Designs to Knit

"Kim Hargreaves needs little introduction to seasoned knitters. Her flair for femininity and elegance has earned her worldwide fame as a knitwear designer. Rowan Yarns gave Kim her first job and fostered her career as a designer. Their prestigious bi-annual magazines, with exquisite photography, were a showcase for her talents for more than a decade. In this book, they have chosen to revisit 25 of her truly great designs in their favorite classic yarns: wools, mohairs and cottons, so there is something to knit all year round. There are smart little sweaters, soft cardigans, tailored jackets and cute tops, with beaded, textured, plain and lacy stitches, plus a few accessories." -- from publisher's website.
