Easy to read and great instructions.
Color Knitting is yet another wonderful instructional book for knitters of all skill levels. I recommend this book for new color knitters as well as those more experienced knitters. We can all learn something new from this book. As usual, the illustrations are clear and very helpful. I have enjoyed all the knitting books they have published. This is a must for every knitters library.
