Number Of Pages:
I have just purchased the downloadable version of this book. At first glance it is as good as the preview pictures.
I wanted to comment on the yarn used in the book as often most yarns used in American publications are worsted weight. Whilst the cover garment and a couple of others within are worsted weight, there are quite a few that are DK or sportweight too. The tan cabled jumper that is visible in the preview is in DK weight, and there is a men's version of it too in a crew neck rather than funnel neck, also in DK weight. Look forward to getting into it!!!!
