SUMMARY- There are useful general patterns in this book. You get diagrams, but no written instructions. These are general motifs and edgings - no specific representational motifs(like monograms or holiday trims). No explicit permission to use the patterns commercially is given, but it is implied by giving patterns to be used for a craft stall.
