These are excellent patterns for sock knitters who want challenges. The directions are clear and the charts are easy to read and intuitive.

I've made a few of these patterns and, like Cookie A, they are quite complicated but rewarding to knit.

A couple of the patterns were hard to follow, so this is not a knit at a soccer game project book!
