If you are a more advanced knitter and like to make wearables, this is a great book of patterns. The cover is even a plus as it is plasticized and has a flap that works as a bookmark. The book celebrates the work of Dorothy Reade who made great strides in knitting but is not a well-known as others.
17 projects to choose from which include tops, shawls, socks and even a table runner! This is one project that I might even try as it is skilled at EASY! I will have to bone up on how to read a chart before I begin as that is the way the pattern is written. That won't be a problem as there is a section on just how to do that.
The first section is a history of Ms. Reade and her work. Photos of her lace pieces, carding wool and spinning are included. The next six pages are knitting basics and where the how to read a chart is included.
Each pattern starts with a blurb and a photo. A skill level, materials needed and gauge are next. The chart to create the item follows.
If your skill levels included a comfort zone with reading charts or you want to stretch your skills, this is a wonderful book with great projects to create.
