For Your Review: The Knitter's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns

Do you want to knit a sweater with some of our fabulous yarn, but just can't find the perfect pattern? It's Ann Budd to the rescue with this wonderful book.

Sizes range from a child's 26-inch chest to an adult 54-inch sweater, with 13 sizes in-between, so you're bound to find one that works for you (or your lucky sweater recipient.) Yarns range from chunky to fingering-weight, for every basic pattern, so you can use pretty much whatever you want!

Sweater styles would work for both men and women, and include drop-shoulder, modified drop-shoulder, set-in sleeve, saddle-shoulder, raglan and seamless yoke sweaters. For the knitter who wants a little more guidance, each style also has a few "copycat" patterns. For, say, a fabulous zip-front jacket.

You choose your yarn, needles, and gauge - Ann does all of the math for you!

Happy Knitting!
