This book is great! It is just what the title says- how to write knitting patterns! It includes so much detail and tips about writing patterns, charts, scematics etc. Plus it goes into details about selling, and submitting patterns for publication as well.

Well, I must say, this was not what I thought it would be, so maybe that's why I didn't like it much. It really is a guide for writing patterns. As in redaction, writing and such. It really is not about how to conceive, test and create garments. Can be useful if you plan on publishing or selling your patterns, but it's not what I was looking for.
