3.0 out of 5 stars Confusing, January 3, 2010
My mom got me this book as a Christmas present. It has some really beautiful patterns with pictures of exactly what they're going to look like, however, as others have said, it has some problems.

I'm a beginner to intermediate knitter and have never worked from a chart before so I had to do a good bit of research online to try to figure out how to use the charts since, as others have said, some of the symbols aren't represented and there really isn't a good explanation of how to read the charts in the book.

After my research, I was ready to try the Raised Rib pattern on pg. 75. I tried this pattern, I think, 4 different ways and pulled it out & started over before I finally figured it out. From what I read online, charts should be read right to left for odd rows & left to right for even rows. After looking through some of the simpler patterns, I realized that her charts are all right to left for every row.

Once I figured that out, I started making some great headway. Perhaps this info may help others here who have had problems with the charts in this book.
