Things I like about this book:
* the "What you'll need" section at the start of each pattern, detailing the yarn, needles, and notions you will need for the project.
* the "basic anatomy" section at the beginning of each chapter, describing the construction of the piece. I found this especially helpful in the socks chapter.
* the "quick tips" and "personal touches" in the chapters -- encouraging me to experiment!
I recommend this for those knitters who have a bit of experience, but are looking for simple, versatile, easy-to-read patterns.
