I have almost completed the Daisy Mesh Vest pattern, but wanted to forewarn those of you who want this book. I was thrilled to get it initially, as the patterns and photography looked really good. After this project, though, I am seriously not sure if I will try another from this book. I consider myself to be an intermediate/advanced crocheter, and I have to say that the directions for this vest were not clearly written at all. I have been able to figure them out as I go, but I don't like spending that much time frogging and redoing my work. Let me make myself clear-I have NEVER had to work so hard to figure out what the pattern is trying to say. Overall, the pattern is really simple, but the directions make it waaaaaay more complicated than it needs to be.

That being said, there are some really gorgeous things in this book, so if you are willing to take some extra time to figure out the directions, you might like it.

I should have researched the contents of the book a little more closely! The patterns in this hardcover book appear to be a compilation of already existing PATONS booklets. I found, to my dismay, that I already have more than half of the patterns in the book because they are reprints of the mini booklets. However, if you do not own any of the Patons crochet booklets, then I would recommend this book. The patterns are cute and not difficult to follow.

I love the shawl, all the patterns are geared for summer wear and although they make look a little advanced, most can be made easily.

My biggest problem with this book is that I didn't read the tiny line on the cover which says that it was written by Catherine Blythe "and Patons Design Studio." In other words, every pattern is written for a specific Patons yarn, and there is little info on the type of yarn (e.g., worsted weight, chunky, etc.). Every time I want to make something from this book I have to do research online to find out what yarns I can substitute. Other than that, the book is pretty good. The patterns are modern but not too trendy, and the instructions are clear. I've made a few projects and they've all turned out well.

I have just started the Open-work cardigan (which is the red cardigan on the back book cover). In the instructions the number of stitches is off and thus within my first two rows I found an error and had to start over. WARNING...count the stitches accurately before beginning the patterns. Very frustrating. I also did not realise that this book is written with patterns directly from the yarn company Patons Design, a yarn that I cannot find in Italy. I bought the book on Amazon.co.uk, the English Amazon. I am not very pleased with the patterns themselves as they are on the "old-school" style of crochet and not contemporary or unique at all. I do hope to not find any more problems with the instructions as I continue this pattern.
