Knit the sweaters of your dreams! Rita Maassen's easy-to-use system for interchanging the elements of basic sweater designs is genius and will have you making sweater after sweater to your own specifications. The book begins with six basic pullover designs, then the author explains her system for mixing the elements--necklines, armhole style, color and texture patterns, silhouette--and gives you the instructions for each different design element. Finally, she puts her system into practice in 23 unique sweater designs, giving the full instructions for each and explaining which elements she chose and how she put them together, so that you may then either follow these patterns as written, or do your own mixing and matching to create your own unique sweater pattern. Over 70,000 different sweaters are possible with the options presented!

Following their creed of minimal finishing, Deb and Lynda Gemmell and fellow Cabin Fever designers bring you more than 30 delightful fashions for children. Most of the designs are knit in one piece or constructed from one of three different directions. Choose a cozy pullover knit in the round from the bottom up or from the top down. Or choose a cardigan or vest made in one piece, working back and forth on a circular needle. These can also be knitted from the top down with no seams to sew. For something different, work a sweater from each of the cuffs and then join in the middle. There also is a poncho, beaded bag, tunic and hat, hoodie vest, and bare midriff slipover. Your special little ones will love wearing these amazing creations, which are great for experienced as well as beginning knitters. Kids' Knitted Sweaters & More (Leisure Arts #4399)

Beloved knitwear designer Connie Chang Chinchio presents for the first time a complete collection of twenty brand-new designs. Knitters know Connie Chang Chinchio's wildly popular patterns from Knitscene and Interweave Knits and will be clamoring for this book of original projects. Textured Stitches brings her trademark combination of simple knitting with lovely patterned stitches to flattering, wearable garments and accessories. The patterns are fun to knit, mixing quick and easy stockinette stitch with more involved stitch patterns like lattice, knitted pleats, cables, twisted stitches, and ribbing. The textured stitches help create a tailored fit, while classic stockinette lends drape and polished finish. Knitters will also learn how textured stitches affect gauge, how yarn choices influence the look of patterned stitches, shaping, and special cast-on and bind-off techniques. The result is a wardrobe full of stylish and smart sweaters, tanks, tees, and accessories that you'll love to make and wear.
