You can knit that Foolproof instructions for fabulous sweaters

Amy Herzog, 1975-

Book - 2016

"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, all-in-one construction, 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 sweaters,"

Review by Library Journal Review

Herzog (Knit To Flatter) brings her combination of thorough analysis and encouraging guidance to her latest collection, which targets sweater-phobic knitters via a series of simple-yet-flattering vests, pullovers, and cardigans in a number of shapes and a generous range of sizes. As in her earlier books, Herzog brings extensive knowledge of sweater construction to her designs, providing detailed instructions and handy hints in each of the book's 24 patterns. The introductory material covers sweater-knitting basics, including tips for knitting and measuring gauge swatches, suggestions for sizing and modifying patterns, and techniques for seaming and finishing knits. VERDICT Herzog's expertise, combined with her ability to explain clearly the hows and whys of sweater knitting, will build confidence even in the most reluctant knitters. © Copyright 2016.
