This book is much easier to understand than Mosaic Knitting by Barbara G. Walker. That book is good if you already understand how to do slip-stitch knitting and want a lot of stitch patterns. This book tells you how to do it and illustrates each design with samples in full color. There are complete garment patterns as well as sample stitch patterns. There are several non-abstract patterns such as a horse decorated pullover and a top with cactus and coyote motif.

Consider this the sequel to Barbara Walker if you're looking to take your slipstitches to the next level. While Walker lays out everything you need to know in a specific chapter in her Treasuries, Bartlett shows and tells with explanations, charts, graphs, variations, and a bit of color theory. Although the patterns aren't quite to my taste, they're enough of a clue to learn how to design my own.
