A wonderful collection of patterns. There's nothing about how to use color, and you have to find where the repeats begin and end yourself, but I love this book and put it to use right away. I like that the patterns are grouped by traditions (eg. Norweigan designs, etc.).

Alice Starmore has a beautiful color sense and I wish she had more color suggestions for her patterns. My main problem with this book is that she doesn't indicate the number of stitches and rows in a pattern repeat, nor does she break her grids up with darker lines every 5 or 10 stitches to facilitate the counting of stitches to determine this for oneself. Plenty of ideas here, though.
