Publisher Comments:

"Both a pattern book and a reference guide, this is an essential tool for all."--"Vogue Knitting."

Synopsis:

Created for knitters who want standard sweater patterns in a variety of sizes and gauges, as well as those who want a template from which to develop their own designs, this book provides easy-to-follow charted instructions for 18 sweaters, three in each of the six most popular sweaters constructions. Each style is then provided in 15 sizes ranging from toddler to large adult, then further divided into six possible gauges: 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 stitches per inch combining for 90 options for each of the six styles, or 540 patterns in all. The cardigan and neckline variations make for more than 1,000 patterns. Detailed schematics for finished dimensions are included, along with a glossary of techniques and a chapter on design considerations. This is a definitive resource for the passionate sweater knitter.

2momof2turtles, November 2, 2007 (view all comments by 2momof2turtles)
I was inspired by Ann Budd's book The Knitter's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns, Basic Designs in Multiple Sizes and Gauges, as I looked through a friends copy. It is now time to return her copy and buy my own.

The book helped me get started on a sweater I just finished knitting, it made the daunting possible!!! The book offered ideas and directions so I could use yarn I had spun with a very special set of needles. (The needles were a birthday present from my 5 year old son, purchased with his own money.) Before I was introduced to this book I was at a loss about how to get started!

The instructions and illustrations were very clear and helpful. Ann Budd gives permission to photo copy pages or write in the book. The charts regarding the size and gauge are very simple to follow. The photos of the sweaters offer clear images and show details.

This book has helped boost my confidence as knitter. As I tell my students and friends "the only limit is your imagination." Now my imagination and skills can work together. Looking forward to starting my next sweater with my own copy of The Knitter's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns at my side.
