Being a beginner at knitting, I found this book to be extremely easy to follow. It is very detailed in the patterns and it shows the knitter how to do stitches that you wouldn't always know how to do. Even the patterns that look difficult for a beginner, are not with the detailed instructions. No doubt, it's a good book.
The scarves in this book are amazing, really. It's the best book of scarves I've seen.
Both the very nice, normal type of scarf is here, but also a couple of really whacky off-beat scarves that I LOVE! (worthy of an art-school girl, as my husband calls me) This book is a keeper--I'm not sick of it yet as I am of some of the knitting books I purchased when I was a rank beginner!
I agree this is a beautiful book but I think the title is a bit misleading. I was disappointed in so few crochet patterns(only 3 items to crochet in the whole book). Since the title states '...to knit and crochet' I expected more crochet patterns. I am not a knitter so most of the book is a waste for me except to look at pretty pictures. I'd love to see this type of work book for crochet.
