Saturday Style – Casual Knits for Weekend Wear by Doreen L. Marquart link to purchase Saturday Style

Saturday Style contains 16 sweater patterns, with three tees, three jackets, six cardigans and four pullovers. Nice colorful large photos of the finished sweater accompany each pattern. The patterns are easy to follow, with nice text spacing to make them easy to read when the instructions are more detailed. All of the patterns are labeled easy to intermediate with most being easy. One problem I had was that least half of the finished sample sweaters were knitted with self-patterning yarn which can look nice, but in some cases made it difficult to see any patterning stitches in the designs.

I like the diagonal yoke jacket, (pictured on the cover) although I would not use the self-patterning yarn. I also liked the Drop-Shoulder Tee which is a simple round neck tee with a cap sleeve. I love knitted tees especially with cotton yarns. Several of the cardigans were a bulky look and had large buttons which I didn’t like, but there were a couple of oversized sweaters that looked like just the thing to wrap up in on a cold winter day.

Saturday Style has nice casual styles that would be good for beginners or advanced beginning knitters.
