This is a nice, clear book, but do be warned that the patterns are a bit worthy or even old-fashioned, so don't expect anything particularly modern, although the northern lights bohus hat is pretty fab. You'll find several hats here, including tams and the usual bobble hat but also an earflap hat, hooded scarf, pill box hat, double cap (lacy) with a chart for adding the wearer's name on the inside, a balaclava and rather interesting helmet. There are several mittens and some really nice and stylish gloves. In addition there are several socks including some rather lovely shaped ones in grey plus multicolours. You'll be introduced to a number of interesting techniques along the way as well as some pretty patterns. Overall this is a book you'll make things from, and probably several times because the patterns are practical and the designs will please most people, but it isn't the kind of book you might be immediately drawn to because of any wow factor.
