Overview


Big city. Big style. Discover knitting that's fashionable yet timeless.

Knit for uptown or downtown with a trend-setting New York City designer. With these 20 polished, sophisticated projects, knitwear designer Melissa Wehrle has created a collection that perfectly reflects the rhythm, flavor, and drama of city life.

From a chunky cabled sweater and hat to a beautiful tunic and gossamer cardigan, Melissa's designs are beautifully shaped, expertly finished, and ready to be shown off on the street. They feature a variety of construction and finishing techniques, including knit-in pockets, tabs, button details, slip-stitch edgings, and small slits and pleats.

Projects are divided along three themes: Heart of the City- Designed for those who enjoy sleek midtown in mind. Urban Bohemia- The downtown bohemian goddess will love these looks. City Gardens- Made to inspire a sense of tranquility. These three looks balance out a complete picture of the modern woman. What more could a city knitter need?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Intermediate-level knitters who enjoy fashionable everyday garments will gravitate toward this title." --Library Journal

Library Journal
09/15/2013
Fashion Institute of Technology grad and knitwear designer Wehrle was inspired by the urban landscape of New York City for her first book-length collection of knitting patterns. The focus is on sweaters of a variety of styles, from button-up cardigans to cozy pullovers, with a few accessories added in for good measure. The projects generally use high-end, luxury yarns, and the patterns include attractive details such as lace patterns, chunky cables, and waist and bust shaping. Written and charted directions are provided for all lace and cable designs, and most of the sweaters list directions for a generous range of sizes, from extra small to XXL and beyond. VERDICT Intermediate-level knitters who enjoy fashionable everyday garments will gravitate toward this title.
