Overview

In Custom Knits 2, Wendy Bernard picks up where she left off in the bestselling Custom Knits (published by STC Craft), empowering knitters to delve even further into customization. Each chapter begins with a tutorial on the featured topic—such as converting patterns to fit men, women, or children, or tricks and techniques for substituting yarn, gauge, and stitch patterns—and is followed by a selection of Bernard’s fashionable designs on which to try them. The patterns can be knit as-written or customized; specific prompts for customization are included throughout. Custom Knits 2 concludes with formulas for making garments without a pattern, using only body measurements as a guide—a graduation of sorts for adventurous knitters.

Custom Knits 2:

“If you thought you learned a lot with Wendy Bernard’s first book, Custom Knits, hold on to your calculators, knitters! If Custom Knits showed you how do some top-down gymnastics, Custom Knits 2 invites you to join Cirque du Soleil with your brain.”
