The first pages are an excellent (as usual with DW) examination of the history, fabrics (especially helpful as she discusses drape and which fabrics to use for each purpose), tools, materials, and first steps to Hardanger then become a bit of a stitch dictionary with excellent diagrams showing how to accomplish the stitches.
The one niggle is the lack of crystal clear cutting instructions but Anchor and JP Coates websites both have such outstanding videos I couldn't drop a rating star on this book. Cutting is addressed in each project but newcomers to Hardanger would be well served to watch the videos before having a go with Hardanger scissors!
The section is over 50 pages of stunning projects. She gives step-by-step instructions for creating the gorgeous projects in the book - few to my tastes or needs but stunners and there is something here for anyone. The book closes with full colour DMC colour tables and supplier lists.
An excellent addition to the home stitcher library, I'm glad I bought this!
