    DONT BUY THIS BOOK

    As a begging knitter, I was real excited about this book, since the patterns appeared so easy. I began with a over-wrap throw, and when I was almost done it did not look right, so I had a friend check it out, and she found that this pattern was full of errors, and just by looking she saw others were to. So I had to rip it all out ! I should add that I did not purchase this book through barnes and noble. That was probably my first mistake!
