I knit a couple of rows before I discovered a problem: the pattern says to cast on 34 stitches, and really need to cast on 36. Then another problem appeared. The pattern says to knit to the last four stitches, knit two together and then knit the last two stitches. This results in a nice, clearly defined edge. But only on the left! I worked quite a few rows before I realized that I was missing that edge on the right because the pattern doesn't say to knit two together in the beginning of the row.
It makes me worry about the other patterns in the book. If this one simple wrap is so badly edited, then what about the others? I have had to restart this simple thing a few times already.
It is a lovely book, but beware of editing (or writing?) errors!
I haven't made anything from the book yet, as it was just published a few days ago, but upon reading, the the patterns seem well written and clear. The sizes range from the usual small, medium & large. Many knitwear patterns are written too large for me so I am hoping the small or medium will be suitable.
I do wish the all the garments were shown from the back and sides as well as the front. And a black hat & scarf set has no depth in the shadows so the detail is lost.
As a professional artist & graphic designer, I am inspired by books such as this one. Over all, an enjoyable gift.
While not sized for amples, the schematics and simple but creative designs allow for easy adaptation to other sizes. And - there are a few warm wooly sweaters here too - with special artistic "twists" not found elsewhere.
This is a great addition to my knitting collection! I look forward to creating some amazing pieces with this book as my guide.
I would definitely recommend this book. It's beautiful!

The book's content is excellent and the seller's customer service is wonderful!Published 12 months ago by Wendy T.
Have made several of the garments in this book, and have been more than happy with the results.
Substituted yarns, working the tension square first, with much success.
The yarn choices by the designer were too trendy and outdated. The patterns themselves had many errors and I spent almost an hour changing them. Not a very book. Read morePublished on December 3, 2013 by Amazon Customer
