The format to the patterns in this book is broken down as: 1. they will all start and end with 8 rows of garter stitch, 2. each pattern row will start and end with 4 or 5 garter stitches to make the square frame.
The only criticism I had was that the illustrated instructions in the back of the book that demonstrate how to PSSO with the knook were lousy. For example the white lace dishcloth pattern went as follows...
P2 K2tog YO K1 YO Sl1 K1 PSSO (Purl 2, Knit 2 together, Yarn Over, Slip 1, Knit 1, Pass the Slipped Stitch Over)
what they mean is that you need to pull the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch and off of the needle the same way you would if you were binding/casting off. If you leave it on there like it shows in their illustrations you will have too many stitches. Hence PSSO means "pass the slipped stitch over" and is a subtle way of making a decrease. In this case, when using the knook you will simply take your hook and pull the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch and then off of the piece of cord holding your stitches. When using the knook to knit, the cord holds your stitches exactly the same way as a knitting needle would, and the crochet hook acts as the other needle that you would insert into the stitches. With this specific lace pattern, you will need to minus a stitch for each yarn over, or else your dishcloth will be gigantic.
Quick and easy to learn techniques are used to help you learn. I liked the special instructions that went with each new design stitch combination that was at the beginning of each pattern.
