I like Ann Budd's books, because it is so easy to customize the patterns. The book is mainly tables of sizes, gauges, and stitch counts. I especially like that format for children's sweaters. Most of my DGC's (Dear GrandChildren) are tall and slim, so it is easy to follow one set of numbers for the width, and another for the length.
