nice presentation Review by Heather

To try out the motifs, I've been making dish cloths. And, like the previous reviewer, I have found errors in some of the instructions too. Currently, I'm trying to figure out where the instructions are for the Summer Spiral which is pictured on page 166. The instructions and chart show a different motif from the example shown over the picture. Overall, it's a great reference tool and has beautiful examples of the finished work. It would be better if a little more editing had gone into it. I would like a website with error fixes.

Great patterns, but... Review by Marsha Glassner

I love the motifs in this book. But I''ve only made a half dozen or so of them so far and already found two with major errors. Is there an errata sheet for this book? It really needs one. I had to give up on the rose because it''s clear that the pattern instructions are wrong, and I can''t figure out what they are supposed to be. Otherwise I think it''s a great book, and the clear photos are really helpful.
