User Review  - Joyce - Goodreads

Beautiful project book, but no charts! Undertaking these beautiful cabled patterns is a daunting task when there are no charts included. I do love almost every project in the book though so one day soon I will get courageous and begin. Read full review

User Review  - Ainslie - Goodreads

This book was enjoyable to browse through, but when I looked closely at the patterns I thought I might knit, the sizes and shapes weren't for me. I love some of the actual cable patterns though, and might incorporate them into other projects. Read full review
