I found the patterns in this issue to be a little lackluster, especially given that I made 9 things from the previous issue. With that said, I still like Vogue Knitting more than most knitting magazines for patterns.
I bought this book because I saw a Schulana ad with a vest I wanted to make. I am sooo glad I did. It has some amazingly beautiful pieces. I made the vest and am now making a sweater. The directions are in 3 languages including english and very easy to read. The only bad thing is that the print is a little small but it's not unreadable.
