I particularly like the refresher section, clear instructions and lovely illustrations.
I will be starting with something pretty simple, maybe a hat and hopefully work my way to the more complicated patterns.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Dover Publications

I recommend this book highly for the ease of the instructions as well as the diversity of the patterns.
There is several yarn companies used in this book: Bernat, Crystal Palace, Judi and Company, Lion, Patons, J&P Coats, Red Heart, and TLC so it is not all high end yarns. Some materials list by yardage some by ounces. The approximate times are also listed. I found that the patterns I made were actually quicker to make than the listed times.
I would check this out at the local library before buying it sight unseen.
My biggest pet peeve--books (as this one does) that list the yarn requirements in ounces, not yardage. Unless you are using the exact yarn, "16 oz" does not tell you much!
