Review by MarthaJeanne
I love the stitches. on that basis I would give this book 4 1/2. But I have marked it way down for the poor editing.1) The font doesn't distinguish between 'I' 'l' and '1'. Please. Make the directions easy to recognize.In the front is an introduction to knitting and in the back is a list of abbreviations used.2) The introduction says how important it is to be able to read charts. It does not go on to say how to do it, nor does the book provide any charts. 3) The abbreviations used are not consistant. You sometimes have to guess what is meant because the pattern you are trying out uses different abbreviations from those listed in the back of the book.4) And once you know what the abbreviation means, there is no explanation of how to do it. K1B means Knit one below. The introduction only tells how to knit, not what 'knitting below' means.5) It would be much better if there were photos of both front and back. I often prefered the look of the 'back' . Also occaisionally the wrong side was pictured. (Not of the ones where I prefered the back.)
