    The patterns are for an advanced knitter

    As a knitter I usually make scarves, shawls and Afghans. The first chapter in this book is all about those items. The other 3 chapters are tanks, sweaters and jackets.

    The instructions are mostly clear. I did find one that I wasn't sure about. It read K1, (P1, drop YOs) 5 times... OK I get the K1, (P1..but I am not sure about the drop YOs. I tried to look it up in the abbreviations but didn't find it. I tried the Internet and didn't find it. Since I have never heard or done this type of stitch, I presume it literally means for me to drop the YOs.

    The colors are bright and the yarns are soft and pliable. What the authors label as Intermediate skill level, I would say was advanced or even expert. Several have charts to knit from and that is a skill I have never learned. Finally, all the tanks, sweaters and jackets are not as long as I would like them.

    Maybe I am just too picky or not skilled enough at making actual clothing but this book is not one I from which I will be doing many projects. If you are skilled at charts and changing colors many times in a row, grab a copy as the projects are beautiful.
