Great book but beware if you need a very large size
on November 19, 2012
More than half of the patterns in this booklet are worth making and the yarns that are used are displayed very well. The designer definitely mixes color well and makes these items very wearable for every woman. The only thing that might be a minus for this book is that the two vests that are included are not in expanded plus sizes. One of them goes up to 46 and the other to 48 so it will be okay for many people but for those who are looking for garments that are larger than that, you will have to be comfortable with altering patterns before attempting them (and if you are experienced enough to alter a Tunisian pattern, then you are probably not looking at buying "The Ultimate Beginner's Guide..."). The beret and scarf are absolutely fabulous, as is the ruana. The drop stitch cowl would be great as a regular scarf, too. The duffel bag is very nice and could be used for a long time without going out of style. This book is definitely worth the money if you are interested in Tunisian. Even if you have some experience with Tunisian, this book is worth looking at.
