Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There's no need to spend a lot of money purchasing a designer sweater when you can have the satisfaction and pleasure of knitting one yourself! Created by the author and 10 other top American knitwear designers from Classic Elite Yarns, these 60 fabulous sweaters are classics that will remain in style for years because they feature colors and textures that are fashionable but not faddish. Many of the patterns are appropriate for both men and women, and some are provided in sizes for both adults and children. There are projects that are ideal for novice knitters and others that are quite challenging — each one has its difficulty level clearly indicated. Beginners will enjoy working on the "Winds of Weekapaug" designs, which use a chunky gauge and can be completed in less than a week. More experienced knitters might prefer the casual elegance of "Barnyard Guernsey" with its rather intricate diamond pattern made with seed stitch. There are warm-weather knits like the short-sleeved "Rosa Rugusa Blouse; " Icelandic styles using two-color Fair Isle stitches; interesting stripes; quick-to-knit, cozy-hooded jackets; whimsical motifs...and much more. Discover intriguing textures, wonderful colors, and delightful details — and every sweater is a new classic that will look great year after year.
