4.0 out of 5 stars Clear, lively and helpful book, 10 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cornish Guernseys and Knit-frocks (Paperback)
Half of the book is filled with lively stories of how Ms Wright discovered the guernsey patterns, and her encounters with the people who knit them and wear them. The other half has very clear instructions on how to knit 30 of the the motifs. For each motif there is a place and sometimes person of origin, and there is a large clear chart for each one, knitting instructions of the k1p1 variety, and a photo of what it looks like when knitted. Sometimes there's a picture of someone wearing a guernsey with the motif.
At the end there are detailed instructions for how to knit a whole Cornish Guernsey.

It is limited to Cornish Guernseys, as the book title implies.

I liked this book and found it more systematic and easier to understand than "Patterns for Guernseys, Jerseys and Arans" by Gladys Thompson. The patterns are clearer, the layout is more structured. The two books make a nice set - a good present for the knitter in your life.

The reason I've not given it 5 stars is because I would have liked even more pictures and diagrams of how to knit the whole garment.

It's a good, clear, encouraging kind of a book, inspiring me to continue with my project, and giving me ideas about the patterns I might put on the sleeves.
