However, of the eight stiches I have tried so far, 6 of them have mistakes in the directions. The word directions did not match the charted directions. In some instances the words are correct and in others the chart is correct. In one pattern it ends the written directions saying 'repeat these four rows' when they only gave directions for three rows.
This could have been a valuable resource in my knitting library, but because of a lack of proofreading and editing, it is a book that has little use.
However, the written instructions are not clear, so I relied more heavily on the charting. For this reason, I would not recommend this book to beginners, or even to intermediate knitters. The instructions are fine for a seasoned knitter who knows exactly what different stitches are. For example, "knit 2nd stitch from behind the 1st stitch" is not an intuitive instruction for beginning knitters, whereas an experienced knitter would know. The glossary in the back of the book does not break down this instruction into discrete steps. This is strange, especially since there are detailed instructions and photos for "casting on."
I would recommend this book to designers who might need some fresh ideas for projects. Each pattern lists the number of stitches suited for working repeats, which is great for selecting appropriate patterns for projects.
