Does anyone have this?  How do you like it and is it useful?

I have this book. I made the felted bowls, the toddler sweater, the felted purce, baby hat, the socks which were really comfy and easy to make and I can't remember what else....but I really like the book. I have a whole shelf dedicated to knitting pattern books and this book by far is the one I seem to use the most. I would suggest getting it, I love it.

I have this book and have made a couple of things from it.  It's a good investment, although some of the items are a little cheesy. 

I'm still bitter about running VERY short of yarn for the raglan shrug pattern.  I had stitch gauge, I had row gauge, and I ran out of yarn with many, many full pattern rows left.

I highly recommend this book! Simply love it. I've made many things from it. Right now working on a baby sweater for my newborn niece.

Love this book!  It has become my go-to book for smaller gift projects.  There are some great hat patterns in there.

I'm considering to buy this book.. I'm very short on time mostly, but I do like to knit now and then. Short projects would be great.

I got it from the library a couple of times.  That's a good way to check out (no pun intended) the book and see what you think.  They also have a very nice website with several of the patterns on the website.

I like the book very much - and I like getting it from the library even more!

I like this book a lot!  It's a great resource for fast giftable stuff.  The second one, Designer One Skein Wonders is better, though

I like both books but I would say the second one is the best.  I think there are some "cheesy" patterns in both but definitely a lot of wearables.  And you get 101 patterns for like $10?
