So it just shows you a bunch of different sweaters you can make, right? Not unusual for a knitting book.
What’s this, though? Upper pages? Lower pages?
I mean, this looks normal enOH WHAT’S THIS
IT’S MY DSMY SHOESMY LAPTOP GOT TWO SETS OF PAGES?
AND IT ALSO HAS A BUNCH OF NECKLINES? MAGIC. PURE MAGIC.
Okay, let me explain a little better. The book is a mix-and-match deal where there are two sets of pages: Top and bottom. Top has sweater bodies, bottom has sleeves or necklines. This basically lets you design your perfect custom sweater, and the intro even has an excellent guide on assembly and some basic skills needed to make sure it comes out right.
The other thing about this book? According to two people I know who got it at my urging, it’s dirt cheap. One got it for $3, the other for 87 cents. No one seems to know about this thing, which is really sad, because it’s totally awesome. Hell, after you figure out how the patterns fit together, you could totally start making your own bits.
Seriously, if you have any interest in making sweaters, you should get this book. It’s absolutely awesome, even if just for inspiration.
