Good in Poor jacket. 8 x 10.5. Dj has heavy wear and scattered light soil, numerous short edge tears, creases and small pieces missing, corners and ends of spine bumped, binding tight, ink writing inside front cover, xvi + 301 pages including index, hundreds of knitting patterns including knit/purl combinations, cable and other texture designs and lace patterns, bw illustrations.
Lots of useful and beautiful stitch designs for adding interest to knitting work. Lots of ribbing, textural, lace and cable designs. Mostly old fashioned but adaptable and many of them I've never seen before. I'm going to use this book a lot. Arrived in good time and good condition (in spite of RSA customs department!)

This book is a must have for any knitting lover. It frees you from the same old patterns and lets you create unique and exquisite works of art. My favorite section is the lace section. My mind started whirling with idea's for adding home crafted lace to everyday items, such as towels and sheets, and making a masterpiece for family and friends. Also, if cabled sweaters are your passion, the cable section will blow you away and get you thinking so far out of the norm that you will amaze yourself with your creativity. I highly encourage everyone to spend the money for this book, as you will never have to pay for another knitting book or pattern again!
