This pattern “assumes we share a reasonable amount of experience: that you know the basic knitting stitches, that you’ve knit a few sweaters on your own. I strongly recommend that you read the book, though, because the techniques described build on each other.”

The original 1985 version is out-of-print but Deborah Robson joined Priscilla A. Gibson-Roberts for this major revision and the expanded edition was published in February 25, 2004.
