PATTERN RATING:Star Rating. Patterns have to be enlarged, but are gridded. They have very few markings to help the crafter. Pictures of the projects are clear and in full color, so you can see what you're shooting for. There is a great variety here with lots of fun-looking stuff. I particularly liked the Grandmother's keepsake, with all the little needlesculpted grandkids "portraits" surrounding the quote on the placard. the footstool is also a hoot - but I have a very peculiar sense of humor, so your mileage may very well vary.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating. Instructions are thoughtfully laid out, and are pretty well illustrated.

SUMMARY- This was the first of the pantyhose books, but the second one I'd seen. There are some similar projects to the second book, but both are well worth picking up.
