SUMMARY- This is actually a sheaf of 11" x 8 1/2" pages folded in half with a half-sheet cover. The photograph glued to the cover is the only picture you get of the patterns made up. It's impossible to see the tatting on the booties and cap and you have to squint hard at the rest. She uses modern notation for the pattern instructions which is in big block paragraphs that are easy to lose your place in(at least for me). They are also faintly printed, so not as easy to read as I'd like. Ms. Stearns has some beautiful designs - I have two of her ornament booklets - but she is frustrating to use because of the formatting of her books.
