SUMMARY- The samples given are line drawings rather than pictures - with a magnifying glass I believe you could count the stitches so I suppose you could treat them as diagrams if you're enterprising. She uses older notation(written rather then symbolic) but breaks down instructions so that they are easier to follow. This would be a good learning book if you're interested in tackling patterns from some of the older magazines but aren't comfortable with the notation.
