I have made quite a few patterns out of this and they are easy to follow and make really great, simple items. My favorite thing I've made so far is my quarantine blanket - which is the pattern, The Hince Throw (p. 56). I've also made the Torbeck Beanie (p.80) and The Ennery Twisted Headband (p. 50). This book has kept me sane throughout quarantine.— Lauren
