I like this book and have done several patterns from it. The instructions are always clear and the pictures are really good. They give you a good idea of what the finished piece will look like. Keeping a simple knit project next to my chair is handy when the grandkids are here, or when my husband is watching sports on TV. This pattern is perfect for that. Right now I am using up my stash of several different greens with a touch of black included now and then just for fun.
