A how-to book on recycling knitted sweaters to create all kinds of fashionable clothes and accessories. Includes the basics of knitting and crochet, step-by-step illustrated instructions, full color photography and inspiration.

Synopsis:

Create unique fashion styles using old sweaters

Here's a book for anyone interested in designing a wardrobe that expresses individuality in fun and creative ways.
