The charts are clear and easy to use with written instructions included, and they are graded into three skill levels making it easier to pick a patterns out for your skills. There is a variety of projects which come with instructions on which patterns would be suitable to substitute to customise the designs. Given the title of the book I was expecting to find me instruction on how to design your own shawl. If your looking for a more advanced guide to Shetland knitting, I'd recommend Heirloom Knitting by Sharon Miller, the charts may not be standard but the level of detail is fantastic.
