Description

Yearning to use your handspun yarn in commercial knitting patterns? Need to resize a sweater pattern because it doesn't fit? Say hello to The Twisted Sisters Knit Sweaters, a step-by-step eBook that teaches any knitter to easily adapt sweater patterns to his or her own measurements and chosen yarn.

The Twisted Sisters, a group of women in Oregon and Tennessee who delight in dyeing, spinning, knitting, and crocheting, illustrate how to adapt the same basic sweater pattern to many different styles, and introduce the elements of sweater design through increasingly challenging projects. These 10 projects, from sweaters, coats, and vests to pullovers and jackets, give the knitter confidence to alter commercially available patterns to their needs, even when they aren't offered in their size. Learn to change yarns, proportions, neckline styles, sleeve length, color and stitch patterns, add collars and edgings, and much more.

Full of schematics, illustrations, and beautiful photography, this ebook will change the way you look at knitting sweaters!
