The exploration of the possible development of classic geometric patterns is both fascinating and an inspiring workshop on continuing that development. The stitch pattern guide is extensive, and helpfully shows the relationships between motif variations. First published in 1988 the fit and styling of the garment designs is rather dated, but that’s a simple matter of changing colours and reducing the amount of ease.
