Not what I expected Review by Evey
Rating

This ebook is fine as a general reference, giving lots of history. But it is very limited in terms of patterns for the knitter. There are only a few full patterns given and there was no option to be able to view the pages in advance. Also, all pages are black and white, so it is a pretty boring publication.
