Books
In this follow-up to Knit to Flatter, author Amy Herzog is back with more real-talk for knitters. In Knit Wear Love, she guides us through picking a base pattern that works for our inherent shape, then customising it to suit our size and style--all with the skill of a top-notch teacher and the honesty and humour of a BFF.Known for her uncanny ability to simplify what might initially seem complex, in Knit Wear Love, Herzog masterminds an easy mix-and-match pattern system that allows us to choose among the eight key sweater forms (pullover, cardigan, vest, cowl, tunic, wrap, tank, and bolero/shrug); eight fashion styles (modern, classic, romantic, sporty, bohemian, avant-garde, vintage, and casual); a trove of customisation details; ten sizes; and three gauges of yarn.The result? Sweaters we can knit with confidence, wear with pride, and love for many years to come.
