This is a beautifully presented book with wonderful wintery photography which will make you want to wrap yourself up in a blanket, sipping hot chocolate and knitting serenely for the evening.
The patterns are clear, concise and easy to follow, especially with the accompanying charts. A good mix for all abilities and there isn't one pattern that I wouldn't knit! As a quick test I knitted up the Comforting Cables Fingerless Mitts and they came out wonderfully! A great little stash buster.
The instructions are very clear and easy to read. The projects range from simple and easy to hard so you can challenge yourself. The images add to the enjoyment of the book and make you feel cosy and ready to get knitting. Overall a great and amazing book I can't wait to start knitting from it.-- Jessica Irene Morgan * Customer Review *
