    Awesome book It was nice to find a book that teaches how to design knitwear and the ethnic element was very interesting This is supposed to the be the first in a series of similar books examining other ethnic styles I look forward to the next one.

    good for ethnic patterns

    This will take several read throughs, but the templates for customizing inventing your own sweater patterns, whether colorwork or textured, are great.
