The beauty of the patterns in the book is breath taking. Cardigans,sweaters, baby outfit, and girl sweater, top in a truly magnificent style.
One star off for using one, and only one type of yarn (not easily avaiable outside author's motherland - Norway).
Please note, patterns are knitted in the round, and cut. This is a bit unusual technique, but enables intarsia type of colour change in every row. I think they lend themselves to adaptation for machine knitting, but I will have to investigate furhter.

This is a beautiful book that I have wanted since I first read about the first edition. At the time, the Australian dollar was very low and later, second-hand copies were SO expensive. It is lovely to have a reprint and was worth the waiting.

The designs are beautiful and are mainly colourwork in fine Norwegian wools. The designs were inspired by antique textiles and traditional clothing and both the desings and their inspirations are shown. The photographs are very professional and inspiring and the overall layout is excellent.

This is a truly beautiful, inspirational book by a first class designer whose talent shines through on every page.
