By kathy muat 24 Feb 2009 5

This is a wonderful book for beginners to improve and experienced knitters to improve and be inspired. Each pattern has detailed explanations of stitches and techniques. There are 25 patterns for women, men and accessories and a beautiful shawl and an even more stunning stole. As Interweave knits is an American company some of the yarns are difficult to grt in the UK but that is what the internet is or. With trial and error the yarns could be substituted.
Try it - I don't think you will be disappointed.
