This book has a wide range of patterns; there are a lot of different clothing patterns (both the ones that everybody seems to put in their books, such as hats, and then some more creative ones, like the granny square skirt). The clothing patterns seem aimed at a younger audience. The book also has some non-clothing patterns, including a couple pillows.

The title pretty much describes it - this book is chock full of fabulous patterns that cover the body from head to toe. Scarves, mittens, hats (mohair or cloche!) slippers, bags tank tops and suits, cardigans or capelet (when was the last time you heard that word?), baskets pillows and, of course throws. Take your pick, the colors are rich and the patterns are gorgeous.
