This is the easiest, most comprehensive pattern I have found. I made my first sweater on a Bond, with NO experience, and it came out beautiful. I have now upgraded to a Studio 303, and look forward to following Ann's instructions to making lovely garments. I highly recommend these patterns form novice to professional.

Absolutely love Anne’s method! Her videos to explain the symbols on her patterns are a “must watch “and are very well executed. Lightning and sound are excellent and professional done and easy to follow. I especially enjoyed seeing Anne in action! Will definitely be buying more!
