SUMMARY- There are a lot of gorgeous patterns in this book, but I had a hard time puzzling out the few diagrams I took a look at. An expert tatter should be able to puzzle them out, but I think a novice or even journeyman tatter might get frustrated with it. Still, lots of eye candy and inspiration, and the frog edging is a hoot.
