This is an American book of knitting patterns using 4 ply Koigu wool (which is incredibly expensive to buy at about £16 for 50g) and modular knitting techniques. However the designs are stunning and it is possible to use other yarns if you can get the right tension. Some of the designs made up of individual squares can even be worked using fewer stitches if your tension (like mine) is too loose. Not for the faint-hearted or beginner but if you yearn to be more creative with your knitting I recommend this book.

When I saw this book I thought it looked intriguing, I liked the colours and the effects of the knitting. However I was less than happy with the instructions and the outcome of the Jazz Cardigan. I knitted the child's one first intending to do the larger one for me afterwards. However I was very disappointed with the outcome, have tried it a second time and still not impressed, they say in the blurb for the book that the patterns have detailed instructions, I didn't find this for this pattern.
Not at all impressed and would not recommend it.

This is a brilliant book for someone who wants to try their first pattern in modular and domino knitting, or for the more experienced knitter looking for inspiration in advanced patterns.

I found the instructions clear and very helpful, with some valuable insights on why certain techniques are needed to achieve a quality finished garment.

It is a timeless and inspirational book.

This is a stunning book for anyone wanting to try modular knitting.
The instructions are clear and concise and the photo`s of the finished garments are fabulous.
