3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but room for improvement. 31 Dec 2007
Jan Eaton's crochet blocks taught me to crochet. Now this book is teaching me to knit lace. The instructions are clear and easy to follow - and, so far, error-free. However, it's not 200 patterns, since more than half are colour variations; on top of that some patterns are very similar - how many ripple stitch patterns do exist anyway? The book includes directions for a scarf, a shawl, pillows and an afghan, although is more about providing ideas than instructions. Even though this book is about stitches, not projects, some directions on the approximate amount of yarn required for the different patterns would have been very much welcome. All that being said, I do enjoy just flipping pages and wondering what to try next, just like with the crochet blocks! A sound addition to my craftsbook collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars something for everyone 1 Nov 2009
By Lindy
I borrowed this book from the library and renewed it several times before receiving a (requested) copy for my birthday. I've made at least half a dozen scarves and blankets since, trying different patterns. I don't knit but found plenty of crochet designs to stimulate my hook, and like seeing the alternative colour suggestions. Interesting for both beginners and experienced yarnaholics.

3.0 out of 5 stars A nice mix of knit and crochet ripples.. But 22 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A nice mix of knit and crochet ripples.. But seriously let down by the number of mistakes in the patterns and no downloadable errata (certainly I can't find one) so I've had to spend a lot of time deconstructing the faulty patterns to work them out myself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality 2 Jan 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this Item sometime ago and many of the designs I find clearly comprehensive. However, there are some that I find a little confusing and led me into errors.

In the overall, I find it a good quality book!
