This helpful handbook helps you design your own sweater with basic guidelines for measuring, shaping, and finishing, so that every sweater you make will turn out precisely as desired. Next there are 12 basic patterns, offering projects ranging from a geisha-inspired kimono to a comfy hoodie to a stylish shrug—as well as such wardrobe staples as a classic pullover and a cardigan sweater.
Learn how to vary length, embellishment, and trim, so that you can invent, customize, and experiment with your very own unique patterns. Try new ways of changing stitches—from cables to chevrons to ribbing—altering sleeve shapes and length, and incorporating ribbons, ruffles, and lace adornments to create entirely new designs. Also included are plenty of knitting tips, helpful hints, and suggestions for still more stylish variations.
Whether you’re a beginner eager to make a simple sweater for your first post-scarf project, an intermediate knitter ready to experiment and design new creations, or a seasoned expert looking for fresh ideas to incorporate into your own patterns, Knits Three Ways is an entirely new, entirely innovative kind of knitting guide.
