Thanks -- great article, as always. Definitely a knits theme in the best patterns, isn't there?

Great article - thanks! Yes, I'm seeing a lot of knits. I think there are two reasons. 1/ Knits are definitely faster to sew, and 2. Aren't there just some fabulous knits out there!

I love the article. It is great for beginners like myself to see what people have success with!

Do you think PR would ever do a Favourite Children's Patterns? I would love to see that and there are quite a few of us here who sew for children.

Thanks for this terrific article - it is always so much fun to read PR's annual article on favorite patterns. I love sewing with knits, but have seen many comments from PR members who are hesitant to sew with knits. This article and these patterns really provide positive encouragement!

Thaks for the article. Great lineup once again. Sigh... at least two of the patterns are already discontinued. Vogue 2925, Simplicity 4020
