There are some beautiful patterns in this book, and although most of the patterns themselves are not for beginners, the book has some basic easy to follow instructions as well as information that beginners should find very helpful.

I love the patterns in this book; but, they're not for beginners; however, they have inspiring me to practice the basics so I can attempt some of them.
