Let me start out by saying I am not a novice knitter nor a super expert knitter. The patterns are not written with a novice in mind or even someone like myself who has done quit a bit of knitting. I would say you would need to be an expert knitter to follow a lot of the instructions. I had to look up several of the abbreviations as I didn't know what they meant. I didn't find the directions to always be clear. I am also challenged with any knitting project as I am left handed and have to reverse a lot of patterns.
That being said, the book is presented in a very pleasing fashion. Good color photos.
I was given this book by the publisher for an honest review. I was not compensated in any way.
