If you are looking for step by step pattern instructions, this is not the book, but if you want to know how to design and express patterns for the craft market, here is your source A master crochet teacher gives point by point ideas how to make your creations look couture adding fit, finishing techniques, fiber choices, undergarments to make them distinctive Good stuff But I still wish she had written patterns for the sample garments she used I m guessing they are proprietary and she wants to sell that info to the crocheter. I real must read if any crocheter wants to make wearable crochet items, the laying out of patterns and the putting together of the garment is detailed and complete I wasn t really impressed with any of the patterns in this book but the how to of starting garments is a must read.
