-- Includes simple, quick methods for making sweaters larger or smaller, longer or shorter -- even after they are finished
|I received a copy of this book from paperbackbookswap. I’ve often gotten it from the library, and actually learned how to knit fair isle from this book years ago. The sweaters are gorgeous & most of them are easy enough for beginner fair isle knitters. My favorite is a sweater that actually uses slipped stitches and fair isle knitting.|
