Overview


Lorna Miser just made it easy for knitters to create customized pullovers and cardigans for babies and children-without any math or guesswork! By presenting more than three dozen optional sweater pieces to be used on four basic body styles, Lorna gives the knitter almost endless choices to mix and match. The interchangeable components include hems, sleeves, necks, closures, pockets, and child-themed appliqués. There are also fabric options to further customize each project! Complete patterns for several finished sweaters are included, giving the reader a clear idea of how his/her own choice of options will come together. This is all the fun of designing sweaters, with none of the anxiety!

Library Journal

Miser (founder, Lorna's Laces) brings her knowledge of yarn and garment construction to this collection of 12 patterns for children's sweaters, which are followed by customization options that allow knitters to make a unique garment. Variations include decorative edgings, added pockets or appliqués, and a variety of collars. The designs range in size, six months to six years, and all are created using colorful worsted-weight yarn for quick and easy knitting. The construction is simple and tailored to children's body types and needs—these are play clothes, not fancy outfits. Some of the sweaters are decidedly feminine, others are unisex as presented or with the customizations. Basic knitting knowledge is assumed; directions for increases, decreases, and finishing are provided. VERDICT Knitters looking to choose their own sweater adventure will enjoy the customizable designs in this fun collection.
