Great knitting patterns, slightly confusing American terminology though.,

This review is from: The Chicks with Sticks Guide to Knitting: Learn to Knit with More Than 30 Cool, Easy Patterns (Paperback)
I loved the patterns, most of them are very wearable but some of the instructions need a bit of 'translation' as it is an American book. I also found that the yarns used in the patterns were mostly very expensive types so in order to make it worthwhile I have had to choose cheaper types of wool, with not always perfect results. It will take a bit of practise getting used to changing the yarns for the patterns.
Still the book is a great beginners one and usually easy to follow. I have however become confused when trying to follow some of the stitches, although that's probably down to my beginner-ness.
