Simple and boring
on 4 January 2013
Maybe my expectations were just too high - I assumed a comprehensive book of fair isle patterns, as beautiful as they can be - flowers, leaves, butterflies, animals,... But this book doesn't contain any of those - just simple, boring abstract stripes. Maybe a couple of them could be classified as flowers, but that's the most lively thing the book can offer. Of course, if you want just a collection of simple abstract stripes (many of which you can find elsewhere or design yourself), then this is an ok book.
The beginning of the book tells a little bit about techniques, but unfortunately, no instructions how to knit (+sew&cut) a fair isle sweater/cardigan.
