These patterns are so wonderful--The fact that they're so cute is just the beginning! Every pattern is printed in a bound, spiral booklet on extra heavy paper so it will lay flat and won't be damaged by normal use. The pattern comes with a DVD that explains the techniques used--lot of tips for every knitting level. If you are wanting to increase your skills to include color work, this is a great way to do it, with a small project that is exceptionally well explained.
Last, but definitely not least, if the style includes extra touches like special buttons, ribbon, zippers, and so forth, they come with the pattern!! Convenient and special!
