The book is fine. My grumble is this is the American version of Scottish Heritage Knits, which I already have. Amazon are suggesting that you might want to buy both together! You won't need to.

I have the other version of this book ' Scottish Heritage Knits' which according to Amazon hasn't been published yet, but I somehow managed to buy it in John Lewis! I was attracted by the cover photo and am making the cover sweater although so far I have found 2 mistakes in the fairisle charts, and mistakes in the shaping of the sleeve. There are some nice designs in this book although I probably wouldn't make more than 2 or 3 of them. Wouldn't recommend for beginners.

I bought this book because of the 2 sweaters on the cover. I like the use of color in these examples. I was expecting more of this in the book. Well, these are the best of the lot.

First, the good:
* The use of color in the designs is nice, not old fashioned, but not way-out fashion either. These are nice wearable designs with very nice use of color in traditional patterns.
* The color charts are large and very clear.
* The silhouettes are modern. No slouchy drop shouldered baggie sweaters here.
That's where it ends.

Now, the bad:
* Who is Martin Storey and what's his story? Why has he been chosen to design all these sweaters for the publisher? What makes him special? I couldn't believe that I opened the front cover and there was the first sweater design! NOTHING about the author. NOTHING about anything. This book is just a series of patterns. Period. I was surprised and disappointed by this. I wanted to read about the designer's inspiration, design process, ANYTHING.
* All of the cabled designs are written out in text. No charts. You must be kidding. There's no way I'm going to read a pattern like this and decipher all that text. The publishers could have at least included both text and charts. I doubt very much I'll spend the time to chart them myself. They aren't that amazing or special.

I'll keep this book for the couple of sweater patterns that are really beautiful and interesting, but I will think twice before buying another book from Interweave Press sight unseen.

This pattern book is going to given to my mother as it is more for her generation than mine. I must say like others I saw a few photos of the knits in Rowan Magazine and thought it was a good book to invest in, I was disappointed. There's no way I am going to invest time and effort for such uninspiring knits.
