I would NOT recommend this book because in many of the pictures the stitches are twisted.

That's fine if that's the intention, but the instructions AND charts don't show twisted stitches.

Why is that such a big deal? It's like comparing a piece of cardboard to a piece of paper--the twisted knit stitches are much less flexible and create a much stiffer fabric, as well as a completely different visual texture.

Almost ALL of the pictures in the first chapter have strong vertical columns of twisted knit stitches, which is WRONG.
