When knitting superstar Amy Herzog gets complimented on her hand-knit sweaters, the compliments are often followed by "but I could never knit that." Now, you can! You Can Knit That is a clear, simple reference book and pattern collection that gives knitters the sweater-making confidence they need. Whether you're knitting a sweater for the first time or seeking to expand your skills to knit sweaters in styles you've never tried before, this essential guide starts with basic sweater know-how, and moves into instructions for knitting six must-have sweater styles--vests, integrated sleeves, drop shoulders, raglans, yokes and set-in sleeves. Each chapter offers a less intimidating "mini" sweater sized for a child and a selection of adult women's patterns in 12 sizes--24 sweater patterns in all, each building on the next, to ensure success with even the most complicated construction.
Whether you have knit a jumper before or not, this book has a jumper to suit, from beginners to the advanced. The authority has included wool types, hints and tips.
Included at the beginning of each chapter is a pattern to knot for a child, so you can check on how the wool will behave once knit up, if you don't have anyone to knit the child's version for, you could donate to charity.
The jumpers themselves are lovely. There quite few I would knit and wear myself.
