    Patterns for garments are only in 1 SIZE

    Very cute patterns, and a nice instructional section, but each garment is given in only 1 size (without any kind of size chart printed in the book) There is an adult sweater only given as a Medium (with only the numerical directions in the pattern for that 1 size) and no information on what a Medium is to this designer (sizing is very different between designers, a 1 at the gap could be a 4 at jcrew for instance) Great book for technique,but unless you want to make a baby sweater in just a size 2 - 3, you are better off with a beginner book by Debbie Bliss.
