    I love Hannah Fettig and her designs and this was the one collection of hers I didn't have. My LYS was running a 40% off sale on all of their yarn and books because they are moving and are trying to pack as little as possible and luckily they had just 1 copy of this book. I can home and immediately went through the book and am glad I finally purchased it. There are so many garments I can't wait to knit (I'm more of a garment and sock knitter than accessory knitter). I would recommend this to anyo I love Hannah Fettig and her designs and this was the one collection of hers I didn't have.

I would recommend this to anyone who love classic flattering designs with more than plain stockinette stitches. There are beautiful textured and cabled patterns within this book.

    I love this book of patterns and can't believe that it hasn't been listed in Good Reads yet. The beautiful photographs highlight each of the designs and I have tabbed at least 6 of them to knit in the coming year. The Rocky Coast cardigan has been a very popular pattern in ravelry.com and I am sure there are other best patterns that will also reach KAL status popularity. Highly recommend this book for your library. I love this book of patterns and can't believe that it hasn't been listed in Good Reads yet.

    The format of this book was particularly charming: two knitwear designers on opposite coasts share patterns and the locations that inspired them. While the photography was gorgeous, only one pattern, the Rustling Leaves Beret, had me eager to dive into my stash. I'm glad I'm familiar with the book, though.

    Surprisingly enough, I liked the Fettig patterns more than the Dakos ones. I really like Alana Dakos as a designer (I own two of her other books) but the ones in this collection didn't really suit me. I guess I like New England's style more then California's. Good idea, okay presentation. Surprisingly enough, I liked the Fettig patterns more than the Dakos ones.

    Beautiful book and beautiful patterns. I've already made two Sand and Sea Shawls, and have the stole and Gnarled Oak Cardigan queued up. Beautiful book and beautiful patterns. I've already made two Sand and Sea Shawls, and have the stole and Gnarled Oak Cardigan queued up.

    Lovely - my only complaint is that there are not more patterns! The drawings, maps, and sidebars make you feel as though you really got your money's worth.
