I am so delighted by this book. The variety of patterns is amazing, each with a clear chart, and it doesn't matter that photos are black and white, they are good quality. Definitely buying other Walker's pattern books.

All four of Barbara Walkers books are in my opinion a must for every knitting designer and/or knitting enthusiasts.
Not that you necessary need to use the patterns as is, but as a pleased inspiration. Browse the books and your next project starts to take form in your mind.
I love them all four in this collection.

Charted Knitting Designs 1 Oct 2005
By Scottish Gypsy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is excellent. I bought this book at my local library's book sale last year for a dollar. It has the most amazing and unusual patterns in it and well worth the money. This is a must have for any serious knitter. The more challenging the patterns, the more I like the book.

This has a lot of unusual knitting patterns that you typically do not see in recently published knitting books. There are 350 different stitches, many of which Barbara G. Walker devised herself.

Chapter 1: Textured Fabrics
Chapter 2: Twist Stitch Patterns
Chapter 3: Cables
Chapter 4: Closed-Ring Designs in Cabling (very unusual stitches)
Chapter 5: Cable-Stitch Patterns
Chapter 6: Lace
Chapter 7: Lace Panels
Chapter 8: Mosaic Patterns
Chapter 9: Color Patterns
Chapter 10: Uncharted Miscellany
Chapter 11: Knitting Directions for Illustrated Samples

Charted patterns are SOMETIMES best 15 Feb 2004
By Lori Freeman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book thinking it would be similar to the first two Treasuries, but ended up being a bit disappointed. There are plenty of new patterns, of course, but much less than I'd hoped for, and many of them are (in my opinion) unattractive and unusable. Many of the cable patterns fall into this category, and some of the novelty patterns are just weird. The spider is wonderfully life-like, but I just don't know of anyone who wants a big, lifelike, textured spider knitted into their garments.
This was my introduction (and a good one, I believe) to charted patterns. My current obsession is cables, and many (though not all) cabled patterns work VERY well when charted in this way. They make much more sense to me than the written instructions using codes such as FC, FPC, SBC, etc. I've been taking many other cable patterns and charting them on graph paper using the patterns in this book as guidelines.
Bottom line - worth getting, but not nearly as indispensible as the first two.

Charted design + photo of the knitted design 20 Nov 2004
By Gagewyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Charted knitting Designs is divided into the following sections: textured fabrics, twist stitch pattern, cables, closed ring designs in cabling, cable-stitch patterns, lace panels, mosaic patterns, color patterns, uncharted miscellany and knitting directions for illustrated samples. The last chapter showcases a few simple projects that use patterns found in the book. All other chapter include a photo of the finished knitted texture and a chart (or row by row directions in the non-charted section) of the pattern. This makes visualizing a finished product so much easier and makes it easy to thumb through and look at textures. The photos cover a big enough section of fabric to really get a feel for them.

The patterns show all kinds. My favorite was one called "The Mask" in the uncharted section. It allows you to knit a theater mask into a piece of fabric. You increase and then decrease for the nose, so it sticks out for a 3-D mask.

This book is hardly a must-have (because there are so many knitting books out there), but it is very good for visualizing what a finished product will look like.

If reading a knit pattern is your problem this is the book! 3 Jan 1999
By mhill@trimet.org - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have been designing sweaters since 1968, I have found this book to be the absolute best. I am dislexic.... and reading volumes of abreviated knitting discriptions is not fun to me... this book iliminates all that by charting every thing in easy to read visable ways. For doing extensive cable patterns to color design this is the book for anyone fed up with reading the means of each stich seperatley... I would'nt be with out this book for anything... an absolute must to anyone's library of creative crafts...

Excellent! 21 Feb 2007
By Suzanne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent source of beautiful knitting patterns, including lace, cable and patterns. The black and white photo's of the stitches are so sharp and detailed, the designs pop off the page. The best part, for me, the charts are very large and so easy to see (without my glasses on!)and very easy to understand what she is telling you to do. She also gives some instructional information as well that is very good. If you buy only one knitting stitch book, this is the one to get!
