This review is from: A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns (Paperback)
The Second Treasury is, if anything, even better than the First. Barbara Walker's directions are clear, she gives many helpful hints, and there are photographs of each knitted swatch. The stitch patterns range from simple (but lovely) knit and purl variations to designs that will challenge the most expert.
If you have gone beyond following the directions in knitting magazines, and would like to start designing your own sweaters, this is a book you should definitely own.
The section on cables is particularly stunning--if you are looking for ideas for Arans, this is a worthwhile investment.
