I bought this as a Christmas present for my niece. It looked as if it would appeal to a student with an interest in art, craft and fashion. Really disappointed in the lack of interesting project ideas. Lots of information on basic techniques which would suit a complete novice, but 30 pages on how to knit with only instructions for scarves, bows, or knitted squares did not inspire. Patchwork items were equally boring, I know retro is in but the items didn't appear to have moved on. Sorry but could not recommend to the age group it seems to be aimed at. I think it tries to cover too much in one book.
