    A must have for any knitter's library

    The patterns included are georgeous, the pictures are fantastic, and the patterns, based on Dorothy Reade's ingenius charts, reimagined by some of today's best-know knitting pattern designers, are wonderful.

    I've learned it's best to check out a new knitting book from my local public library; so often I've purchased a book sight unseen only to discover the patterns are not to my liking.

    I don't know how anyone could not like this book's layout, production quality, biographical research about Dorothy Reade, and most of all the patterns!
