Iconic knitwear designer Sasha Kagan treats readers to a fascinating retrospective of her work from the past four decades in this beautifully presented collection of women's knitwear. Known for her innovative use of color, intarsia design work, and striking patterns, Sasha's designs transcend fashion trends and have become classic pieces in their own right.

Updated and reworked in gorgeous contemporary yarns, the 20 sweaters, wraps, and jackets in Sasha Kagan's Classic Collection are just as wearable today as they were when they were created. The collection spans from 1969 to 2009, with five patterns representing each decade. In addition, swatches, magazine articles, and photographs are included to recreate the original design context for the pieces. Also included are essays by knitwear design notables like Trish Malcolm from "Vogue," and British designers Steven Sheard and Susan North.

Lots of flowery colour work, but all that work just to remind me of what my Slavic Grandma used to wear? Call me a Philistine, but there it is.
