This is a lovely book with lots of good projects but rendered almost useless by buying it on my kindle fire-the charts are tiny and cannot be enlarged! Amazon really have to get onto this problem-bacically I now have thrown away the price of this book-I really would like to send it back and get a refund but there is no way to do this with a download-frankly I feel I have been ripped off and it doesn't encourage me to read that people have had this problem with other books with charts and STILL nothing is done about it. This really doesn't do what it says on the tin.

This book arrived last week and now I'm almost finished one of the hats. I'm an experienced knitter but new to fair-isle. This book contains patterns for what are termed stocking hats and tams, gloves, mittens, socks and legwarmers. The patterns are given as a chart which I found easy to follow. You've got to keep your mind on the job then everything works out perfect.

I found the pattern easy to follow and I would definately recommend this book.

I tried the 'Joanna's Hat' & matching mittens. Really challenging and Required a lot of concentration. So pleased with the result. They are the perfect answer to our cold weather and look so attractive. Loads of admiration (and requestsfor me to knit them for others!) every time I wear them. Thank you to the designers

It will take some time before I can produce the knitwear in this book although I have a fair amount of knitting experience. For instance, I am not familiar with the Turkish method of cast on so I will have to master that technique before I can start.

However, the patterns are interesting and I love some of the colour schemes but it is all very American.

Lovely patterns for hats, tams, gloves and mittens. I found the directions rather difficult to follow as it has been a long time since I knitted gloves, so the first one of the pair has problems, the second one is perfect. Perhaps I should knit three of each pattern? ;-)) Also, the general tips for knitting each type of item are at the beginning of the book instead of with the items, which means a lot of turning back to re-read the beginning. The patterns themselves are mouthwatering, I have had trouble choosing which pattern to start with. I will probably end up knitting all of them! My one gripe is that, for the mittens I am working on at the moment, the thumb pattern is on one page, the back and palm patterns are on another, which means constantly turning the page and remembering which line I am on for each part of the mitten. It would be considerably easier if all patterns were on one page. Minor gripe, though. Also, the patterns are arranged to be knitted from the crown (or tops of the fingers) to the cuff, which my brain doesn't like, so I have to turn the patterns upside down so I can knit from cuff to crown. Again, a minor problem. Otherwise, lovely!

this is a lovely book with great patterns. Each section gives an overview of how the item is constructed and then there are several patterns for each item. I am looking forward to trying these out. I really cant fault the layout and design of the book and the patterns.

I like this author as she gives you information on the pattern and then provides brilliant charts and instructions. Give it a go you won't be disappointed!
