I honesty don't think it is a huge intellectual stretch to add charts to the pages after pages of written instructions. I hate books like this. It was cheap, and to me essentially completely useless after the interesting introductory chapter. I wish Interweave would be more forthcoming about the content of their products, better images online, and more than anything: Charts or No Charts? If you are a practical knitter, memorize your patterns after the second repeat and use a chart only as a reference point, like me, you won't get anything other than endless alphabet soup out of this book.
