I have a quibble however. There are no pattern markings on most of the patterns. I am having to make up where 'line A' might be which means I am having to think very very carefully every time I make something to try and work it out. Is mine a 'duff' copy as regards the patterns or is this true of all 'Cloth' books? Should I try and contact the publisher and ask for some accurate patterns? I can't believe Cassandra would be happy about this as I am a genuine follower and admirer of her work.
The projects are beautiful and simple - the instructions seem clear. I love the style of this book, the gorgeous photography means this is a book I flick through regularly.
