    Honestly I only use one pattern out of this book.BUT I USE THE HELL OUT OF THAT ONE PATTERN This is a beautiful book There are a couple of patterns I like the chair seat using plastic twine that you knit and then shrink to fit using boiling water BRILLIANT I ll probably never do it.But the side to side knit fingerless glove wrist warmers that specify no yarn, no needles, and you knit to gauge I ve made at least 15 pair I ve tweaked the pattern to make them bigger, and smaller I ve added stitches to the wrist end to make an extra long pair This is one of the best patterns for the lazy product knitter read me EVER, and I love it so Well worth the price of the book alone.I even made a crib sheet for this pattern, because the way it reads in the book is a bit complicated many different sizes represented , so I have...
