Kul men inte så lättläst.
Boken hade varit trevligare i ett annat format. Som pocket blir det lite litet.
Häftad i större format hade funkat.

Om du är intresserad av mönstrena i boken (ser ut att vara vintage mönster, blandade mönster för dam, man och barn) så kan boken vara värd att köpa. Det första kapitlet om stickhistoria är också väldigt intressant. I övrigt är boken väldigt grundläggande i teknik, formgivning, osv - inget man inte kan hitta på internet, gratis och inte heller särskilt pedagogiskt framläggts i min mening.
