Pretty projects. Some of them use not-so-common techniques (which it explains how to do).

PN Patterns are attractive, but tend to be on the conservative side. There are no skill indicators for individual patterns, but most look quite difficult. Legwarmers and stockings in beautiful patterns, but they really make the legs look thick--possibly better in finer wool, or perhaps just as boottops.
