This book provides a brief history of Aran Knitting. With a brief over view and explanation of the techniques involved in the design of an Aran sweater. What I really found most helpful is the group of the patterns from 2 rows to 52 rows. The instructions are both well written and also charted. I loved the last section where it showed how the patterns were combined. This really has inspired me to set down and start charting my tree of life sweater design.

By far I think this is the best written and layed out of the 5 book collection. I still wish they were all combined into one book, but that is just me. This book is ideal for both beginners and advanced.
