Please note this edition is based on the reprint of this title last published in 2015. Whilst corrections have been made to any known errata and any improvements already made to single pattern versions have been incorporated into the book, no further updates have been made to the patterns since the last publication date. A very small number of patterns had to be removed from the book due to sizing restrictions - these will be published as single patterns at a later date.
