Okay, fair warning, this is a bit of a rant. I would have given this a better rating (as I plan on knitting a few of the patterns) except all the patterns are CHARTED! it wasn't mentioned in the description, and I wouldn't have bought this book or the two others I also picked up, if I had known. I now have to learn charts or I've wasted my money and I... sincerely dislike charts. Why they don't also include a written description for the cable panels I will never understand. This happens with a lot of cable knits and it drives me up the wall! I have been a devoted fan of Knit picks for a long time, this is the first of their patterns I have tried and it is more than a little disappointing. In all honesty I expected better. Knit Picks seems to be very adaptive to the various persnickety habits of knitters, and I find it rude that they didn't account or at least advice prospective buyers that there are no written instructions. I am mentioning it on this book as I bought it for the Morning Ramble Cardigan in particular and I cannot substitute the cables for something else as I could on a simpler sweater. It's rather intricate and seems designed to flow together in a certain way. This holds up on all the cable books I have bought from this brand, so it doesn't seem to be a fault of the designers.
