Lots of ideas and inspiration in one place
on 29 March 2012
I love this book. I have a rule that I won't buy a pattern book unless there are at least 3 patterns in it that I would make. I stopped counting after 8 with this one!! Even better, none of the patterns take more than a single skein (100g) of sock yarn, so helping to use up my endless stash of indie dyed loveliness. I like that the patterns are divided into sections eg Head to Toe (hats, gloves and socks), Knits for Kids and Bags, making it easy to browse for that perfect project. The charts are nice and big, making them easy to read and pictures show the detail of the items, so you can see what they look like (not too arty or fussy). Not everything is to my taste, as you would expect in a book with over 100 patterns, but all in all, it's a great little book, with plenty of ideas and inspiration for quick gifts and things you'll want to make for yourself. Definitely worth the price tag.
