reviewed Traditional Knitting Patterns from Scandinavia, the British Isles, France, Italy on
This book has some really interesting stitch patterns that can be incorporated into scarves, sweaters, afghans, etc. The variety is great. My one caveat is that the directions are minimal - the patterns lay out the steps for each pattern, with no explanation of more complicated techniques, so this isn't really useful if you're a beginning knitter or have little experience reading patterns. There are no how-to diagrams. Although, if you've ever longed for an intarsia pattern for either Jesus on the cross or Adam and Eve under an apple tree, this is the book for you. No, seriously.
