"To answer the burning question - yes, the Central Park Hoodie is in this book (sized from 32-60"). Plus there's a lot of other good stuff. I'm not a regular reader of "Knitscene" so a lot of the patterns in here I'd never seen. All of the patterns have been published in the magazine, but if you don't have them all this is a great eclectic collection of patterns. There are extras too, articles - I really enjoyed the article about how "Knitscene" uses sweater trends and how to wear them. There's a sprinkling of profiles of "Knitscene's" favorite designers and I never get tired of reading about designers' inspirations. I found at least 8 things I would make in this book - Mathew Gagny's Heleborus Yoke cardigan and Cecily Glowik MacDonald's Michaelmas Mitts top my list." - "Jillian Moreno, Knitty.com" Knitscene is a stateside magazine that's world famous for its fashionable designs. For the first time ever, 20 of its best patterns have been brought together in one book. And the patterns have been improved with extra sizes, technique tutorials and tips. Some of them, including the fabled Central Park Hoodie and Geodesic Cardigan, are no longer available in print, so this is a rare opportunity for you to get hold of them.-Knit Today
