Top-Notch Knits by Martingale & Company link for Top-Notch Knits by Martingale & Company

This is a pattern-packed book with something for everyone. Divided into sections:

Scarves shawls & wraps

Tanks tees & shells


Cardigans & Jackets

Thirty-three patterns in all! Fourteen of the patterns are labeled easy or for beginner knitters, and nineteen are for intermediate or advanced knitters.

The easy color-block shell with the cotton yarn looks pretty and comfortable. There is a lovely cashmere/silk blend lace scarf for the more advanced knitter. My favorite is the shark fin tank which I think I could hand knit the bottom border and then put on my knitting machine to finish. There is also a draped mock neck tank that would be perfect for the knitting machine or by hand. There are a few to make with bulky knits for a faster project.

There are nice large photographs of each of the finished projects. The instructions are well-written and easy to follow. The number and variety of patterns are what make this book so appealing.
