Excellent book, can't recommend it enough. Each pattern has a section where you can plug in numbers and calculate a custom pattern. This is fantastic for making clothes for dolls with odd dimensions; each piece of clothing will fit perfectly. Plenty of raglan patterns, and some of the pieces which are done flat can easily be modified to do in the round. (I'm not a fan of seaming). This is one of the few knitting books I'd actually buy.
