    One thought on “Sasha Kagan's Classic Collection”

    1. A lot of intarsia. technique for small areas is good. Instructions for some of the details is sketchy. Photos don't always show how garment looks overall. Sketch for each pattern at the pattern but a small photo would be helpful. There is a kimono pattern I like a lot . May be worth buying the book.

    2. All colorwork. All gorgeous, but the styles are not timeless classics. They are designed with a specific decade in mind. Lovely, but not my favorite. Only one that I had any real desire to knit.
