PATTERN RATING:Star Rating Every pattern is well detailed and picks up the formation and characteristics of the breed it represents so to be instantly recognizable. These are marvelous!

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating Instructions are well broken down but are in very fine print and brown ink(rather than black) making them harder to read. I don't care. Instructions for putting your knit pieces together are pretty sketchy and without back-up illustration. I still don't care. These are patterns for someone who already knows the basics of knitting.

SUMMARY- These are not meant as toys for younger children, though most could be made child safe I would think. I was astonished at the cleverness of the designs and fine detail they were able to imbue in these designs. I will happily buy all their books sight unseen - these are really top shelf books.
