Yearning to use your handspun yarn in commercial knitting patterns? Need to resize a sweater pattern because it doesn’t fit? Say hello to The Twisted Sisters Knit Sweaters, a step-by-step workshop that teaches any knitter to easily adapt sweater patterns to his or her own measurements and chosen yarn.
The Twisted Sisters, a group of women in Oregon and Tennessee who delight in dyeing, spinning, knitting, and crocheting, illustrate how to adapt the same basic sweater pattern to many different styles, and introduce the elements of sweater design through increasingly challenging projects. These 10 projects, from sweaters, coats, and vests to pullovers and jackets, give the knitter confidence to alter commercially available patterns to their needs, even when they aren’t offered in their size. Learn to change yarns, proportions, neckline styles, sleeve length, color and stitch patterns, add collars and edgings, and much more.
Full of schematics, illustrations, and beautiful photography, this book will change the way you look at knitting sweaters! read more
Another terrific How-to book by the Twisted Sisters. I haven't tried any of their techniques yet but I read this book from cover to cover at least twice! I love the way they have beginners to experienced knitters work a sweater based upon a common shape or technique. I hope they do another one with other shapes or fibres. I love this approach to fitting.read more
