Loved the creativity displayed in this book, the wonderful combinations. Only a lot of them were for intermediate and experienced. I have to practice a lot until being able to make these lovely models.

Some lovely things. Fun to look at. Given the cost of yarn and the amounts needed and with my lack of experience with such patterns, I'll pass.
I wish there were more varied shots of the items; there's more a focus on the models at times and often no shot of the opposite side - no back or front shot of a sweater only the 'interesting' side is shown.
All patterns for females.

Very fashion forward designs that allow you to learn new techniques (e.g. tonal transitions and freeform crochet). I wouldn't wear most of the garments in this book, but virtually all of them are highly wearable and chic.

I really liked the patterns in this book. They were different and cute. Some simple but a lot of them are complex. If your up for the challenge they would make some really great pieces to add to your collection.

Mostly knitted items.

Lovely photos.

No need to really read, just skim to see if the patterns were knitted or crocheted.
