Knit Christmas Stockings, 2nd Edition 19 Patterns for Stockings and Ornaments by Gwen W. Steege Love the different samples shown before the books chapters. Gives you an idea of what the book has to offer. Ornaments are the cutest ever and I love the other patterns, fair isle, Irish fisherman I have a hard time deciding which I'd want to make first. Starts with what you need for materials, abbreviations and other helpful information. Instructions are given row by row style with some chart instructions for the color work involved. Wide rows make it easier to follow the pattern. This is not basic things but if you take your time even a beginner can make these items. And for the experience knitters there are challenges to be met. Reindeer and bells for a long term project-a stocking would be my choice. And for a short term project I'd want to select the heart ornament because it could be used for many other holidays. I received this book from Storey Publishing via Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion
