Book review: Margeau Blanc A New Perspective on Winter White Knits

Margeau Blanc A New Perspective on Winter White Knits by Margeau Soboti
After watching the inaugural and all the women wearing white I had wanted to read this book.
Patterns are simple yet elegant. My favorite is a beannie type hat where crown is worked in special design.
Not all the pictures showed properly for me on my tablet but I was able to understand what was being shown.
Think I like the accessories more than the sweater but those are really nice also.
Each pattern starts out with color photo  and a summary of the item.
Skill level, yarn used, needles and notion along with measurements and gauge.
Stitch glossary is enclosed for each pattern and then the directions, row by row-not charted directions.
Easy to understand and I do not think anybody will have a problem making any of these as the details are so descriptive.
I did not care for the sweaters hanging on a tree branch as they didn't just hang right. It does show how the item will look but I'd rather see a model wearing them.
Like that there are so many different methods for neck and sleeves and even length of sweaters. So versatile.
Abbreviations are listed at the end. Something for everyone.
I received this book from Net Galley in exchange for my honest review.
