Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Melissa Wehrle is known for her clean, refined, and eminently wearable style. A designer for ready-to-wear lines of knitwear, shes a veteran of trend forecasting and regularly translates this knowledge to streamlined, classic but on-trend knits. In particular she uses a variety of construction and finishing techniques to give her designs a high level of polish and sophistication. Her regular use of such techniques as tubular cast-ons and bind-offs, knit-in pockets, tabs, one row buttonholes and button details, slip-stitch edgings, small slits and pleats all help transform a finished garment, giving even basic projects a refined simplicity and elegance. The patterns in this book bring this clean, modern style to readers in a collection of garments and accessories.

Shot on location in New York City, Metropolitan Knits brings to life the themes of each chapter: sleek midtown, downtown bohemian, and city gardens.

Synopsis:

Big city. Big style. Discover knitting that's fashionable yet timeless.

Knit for uptown or downtown with a trend-setting New York City designer. With these 20 polished, sophisticated projects, knitwear designer Melissa Wehrle has created a collection that perfectly reflects the rhythm, flavor, and drama of city life.

From a chunky cabled sweater and hat to a beautiful tunic and gossamer cardigan, Melissa's designs are beautifully shaped, expertly finished, and ready to be shown off on the street. They feature a variety of construction and finishing techniques, including knit-in pockets, tabs, button details, slip-stitch edgings, and small slits and pleats.

Projects are divided along three themes: Heart of the City- Designed for those who enjoy sleek midtown in mind. Urban Bohemia- The downtown bohemian goddess will love these looks. City Gardens- Made to inspire a sense of tranquility. These three looks balance out a complete picture of the modern woman. What more could a city knitter need?
