"There's nothing quite so daunting for knitters as tackling a traditional English-Scottish cabled-patterned sweater from scratch for the first time. Fortunately, Brown-Reinsel has thoroughly updated her ultimate knitter's guide to ganseys (distinguished from Aran sweaters because of their Irish heritage and early-twentieth century roots, among other elements), first published 25 years ago. Several of the nine patterns are new, as is the plethora of color photographs that accompany each pattern as well as the stitches, techniques, and swatches that require visual explanation. Brown-Reinsel's fans won't be surprised by her exquisite attention to detail." ~Booklist, starred review
