The book is conveniently divided into eight categories: knit-purl, crossed and cables, slipped, lacy,double, twisted, cast-off, and fancy stitches.  Making a romantic lacy wrap or a classic cable sweater? Whatever your style, there's a stitch in here for you.
Each of the 400-plus featured stitches is accompanied by easy-to-follow written and charted instructions,as well as a full-color photograph. A section on basic knitting information and techniques at the front of the book makes this volume even more invaluable.

Excellent images, the photos of each pattern are incredibly clear, large and in colour.
This may be a book that I will have to purchase for my home library.
Instructions are not wordy, large pages make the text very easy to understand.

I love this book. I bought my own copy so I can refer to it whenever I'm looking for a new pattern to try and I look at it often. Every knitter should have this on their shelf!
