I love the first "scrapped cover" the best. But mainly I like it better because that sweater she's wearing is adorable and now I really want to make it!

I definitely like the last cover best. I covet this sweater for its stitch pattern and was amazed to find out that it's designed also to be worn upside down! Genius. I can't wait to open this book.

I like the chosen cover best, that cardigan is beautiful and the color really pops against the gray. I think I'm going to buy the book just so I can make that sweater!

December 9, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMarlana

Have to say you chose the right cover, by a clear choice. Of the scrapped, the one where she is looking inside (to see if it is truly a reversible stitch?) is fun. But not as strong as the winner.

I actually love the chosen cover. The green really pops. However, I do love the sweater in the final scrapped cover and am very interested in making it.

I really like the cover with the vest on it, but that's just because I like vests. The actual cover is more intriguing because you can tell that there's something different about that cardigan.

I love the chosen cover because I love that sweater! I think it shows the reversability of the chosen pattern better than the scrapped covers do.

I like the last scrapped cover the best. I love that there is so much 'twist' in that photo--the sweater, the model's stance and the way she's holding out the neck. What a great photo--really makes me want to knit this.

I love the chosen cover! It is absolutely a beautiful sweater and shows the pattern wonderfully

December 9, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSamantha

I like the chosen cover best. I like the colors and the layout. Good font choices. If I had to choose a scrapped one I would go with the green one. I like the combo of the tan and that shade of green. NICE! I LOVE what I've heard about this book so far! Sounds intriguing and might just get me to renege on my "no sweater" stance. =o)

I like the last one. full bodied and natural.

December 9, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKenny

i like the one used, because it emphasizes the textures of the project rather than using color to add interest. and the looseness of the sweater allows the two sides to show without weird poses.

December 9, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterjulie k

I like the top cover the best. It shows a very original looking sweater and I would like to see how it is reversible! And the sample pattern and the reverse on the right is interesting. Barbara

I like the last cover showing the model with the sweater and the cowl neckline turned outside... it is the best design I think and instantly made me want to learn more about reversible knitting. The other covers did not appeal to me, nor did the grey reversible examples.... in fact I was turned off by them.

The last cover design was cleaner, more attractive, and, most importantly, you didn't lose the fact that there were 50 new designs in the book. I think the other designs were too cluttered and you lost that fact.

December 9, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMaureen

LOVE the cover with the green sweater- gorgeous sweater and I like the swatch on the side that really emphasizes what the book is about! Nice choice.

December 9, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterbeth

I like the published cover best. There is something about the green that makes it "pop" more. I think having the pattern on the side is great too. If I saw it in a store for the first time, I would pick it up to browse through it right away!

Oh the chosen cover is by far the best. The others don't show anything innovative in reversible knitting because the garments are just rib and that's booooooring.

December 9, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLaurieM

I like the last cover, the most conventional looking one. The chosen cover (and other scrapped choices) is interesting in that it looks something more like an inside page of a book than a book cover. I will look forward to seeing the inside of the book regardless! I hope I run across it soon.

December 9, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterNancy Jo

I like the last scrapped cover the best, but just because I find that particular sweater intriguing. I like the chosen cover as well.
