I love this book! The patterns are easy to understand and they're designed to modified. I would give this book 5 stars, but there's one pattern that I tried several times and it never turned out right. I still can't figure out what I kept doing wrong. I strongly recommend this book for any knitter, but stay away from the pattern for the brown hat. I can't remember what it's called, but it's impossible.
