Fitted Knits is an excellent source for modern, top-down sweater patterns. From cardigans to vests, pull overs to shrugs, Stefanie Japel has put together a wide collection of patterns loosely based upon raglan shaping. I have knit 3 patterns from this book and found them to be easily customizable

I really love this book. There are so beautiful pictures in it and the patterns are so lovely. I will definitely knit several Sweaters out of it.

I checked it out from the library and didn't find projects that grabbed me.

I received this book as a gift and loved it from the start. The patterns are modern, elegant, and casual all at the same time. I plan to make quite a few of the projects featured in it. I am more of a person who likes clothes that aren't typical, but this book has some nice, cool clothes that I can

I like every pattern in this book.

Some very beautiful designs. However, Japel's over-reliance on raglans gets old after a while. Most of these are one basic underlying design with a few decorative tweaks.

Love this book. It has many great patterns. I have the yarn and the plans to complete 90% of the patterns in the book. I'm very picky about knitting books and found this to be wonderful. There are things for everyone in this book.
