HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!! I downloaded this from Annie's Attic when it first came out. I made the hat (pink with flower) twice so far. I have people stop and tell me they love my hat. I also made the shawl and neck warmer. Also, I'm more of a visual learner so I watched you tube videos to understand the technique and although the technique sounded confusing to me when I read it, the videos were my "AHA" moment. Such an easy technique once you learn it. So if you're a visual learner, DON'T GET DISCOURAGED-watch a video, then use the patterns in this book-you will be amazed.

I think this would be a great jacket for women who are going through chemotherapy to keep them warm during and after treatments.

I am working on a hat and wrist warmers set for my daughter and I'm looking forward to making the shawl for me. I have had problems finding pretty patterns for Fine and Super Fine yarn and this book just fits the bill. I love this collection!

I purchased this item and am in the process of crocheting the shawl. It is turning out SO beautiful. This is something every woman would want to add to her wardrobe. The really fantastic thing about it is you can use it to add that special dazzle to whatever you wear, be it jeans or a fancy evening gown.
