PATTERN RATING:Star Rating Patterns are on teeny grids with very little markings(no room!). I hope you know that you can't expand the patterns on a copy machine all in one go - it will warp the patterns. When they're this small, it has to be done in several steps. There is a lot of variety here of many different styles of dolls, so I almost gave the Pattern Rating a third star.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating Instructions are excellent, with generous amounts of illustration to help the crafter.

SUMMARY- I was impressed with the variety of dolls this book presents, and would recommend it.
