    Such a wonderful website. So much to see. I could spend days just browsing.

  14. Denise says:

    This is a lovely book, I’ve had the chance to look through it. It is on my list to buy when the budget allows :) . Winning it would be wonderful. I could get started on my projects sooner.

  15. Heather K says:

    Sasha is wonderful, as always, and I hope the missing chart was an over-sight as the pattern is pretty useless without it, LOL. Guess I will just have to win the book to get the charnèÉÉt…or wa this just a come-on…

    As a US Rowan International member for the past 9-10 years, I’ve enjoyed and appreciated Ms. Kagan’s designs, because they are unique and beautiful. Her work definitely sets her apart–especially looking at this timeless “Scotty Dog Sweater and Beret”. This duo not only makes the model look effortlessly beautiful (which isn’t always the case with some designers), but also would make an entire family (I know :O) look great wearing this duo and they have (/had ?) the matching dogs, as well. But by now, I’d rather make it myself–for myself because it’s too flattering & cute a design to give away! Thank you!

  17. Cheryl says:

    That is an awesome sweater – I am letting Santa know this is a must have!

  18. Judy VanCoetsem says:

    I would love the Scottie dog pattern. Scotties are my passion. We have two Scotties and a Westie presently. I have never seen such an adorable pattern as this sweater and hat set!!!
    I would love to win it :)

  19. luann says:

  20. loura says:

    Love that cover sweater!

  21. Lynn says:

    Love the Scottie Dogs. My son’s college team is the “Scotties”. Perfect mascot mom sweater and beret. Go Scotties.

  22. andrea says:

    How beautiful! I know just the person to make this for!

  23. cheryl says:

    looks like a nice pattern but without the chart it is just a plain old sweater and beret.

  24. Andrea says:

    A wonderful addition to any knitter’s library. I would love to be able to pour over this book for hours.

  25. Nan C. says:

    Are there instructions for the beret and charts for the dogs?
    I was only able to download one page.

  26. Chris says:

    Beautiful sweaters! The book would be great! thanks!
