This book is power packed with info. However it may not be for a beginner in knitting. It also seems chopped up from other sources and all the pertinent information given to lessen the size of the book. It is one that will be a great addition for any knitter looking to expand their knowledge on color knitting. Love the way Amy teachers , so I was looking more for her in here.

I have learned more in the first 15 pages of this book, than many other thicker books. I highly recommend this book.

This is absolutely the bible of 2 color knitting. Everything you need is here. You will be able to master Fair Isle and Nordic work. I used the book to design my own sweater and it came out perfectly. The sections on how to adapt any pattern to any size were brilliant. Everything was covered. If you have any interest at all in 2 color knitting. . . get this book.
