This book is by Judith McLeod-Odell. She has spent many years tracing old knitting patterns and their sources and has adapted them to today's yarns.
There are twenty sophisticated projects covering every decade from 1820 including throws, blankets, rugs, bolsters and bags. There is also a section devoted to edging designs so that you can create your special and unique heirloom to pass on from generation to generation.
Yarns used are mainly Rowan including Big Wool, Denim, 4 ply Cotton, Cotton Glace, Handknit Cotton and Big Wool.
This is a hardback book with beautiful photography and clear instructions.
