SO MANY PATTERNS! Plus, a lot of interesting stuff about different types of yarn.

Also, if I ever come across a pattern in Swedish, this has all of the Swedish translations for terms in patterns as well. :)

A very attractive book, a few garment patterns, one or two other and some stitch patterns. This book has a decent section on technique with lots of illustrations.

There didn't seem to be much 'Swedishness' about it as most of the patterns seemed English to me.

Some nice things and good ideas and stitch patterns. But many of the patterns are unclear and seem to have a lot of errors.

I loved all of the how-to's in this book. There are so many stitches I had no idea about!
