Love this book. The charts are easy to follow and she inspires you to make your own charts and design your own patterns.

I'm disappointed that the motifs & sweater that are pictured on the cover and throughout the book are not (except for the leaf pattern) are not included in the book. If it's on the cover it seems to me that it should be included in the book. Several other sweaters are included and have full instructions. The pattern repeats and additional guide lines should be in a pattern book as well. Beautiful choices for color though.

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.
