Fabulous sweaters . . . in the same colorful, enticing format [as Twisted Sisters Sock Workbook].
Library Journal

The "Twisted Sisters" who inspired this book-along with Vogel's The Twisted Sisters Sock Workbook-originated as a Portland, OR, group of handspinners that dyes and knits using its own handspun yarns. Taking the form of a self-paced workshop, this practical guide to knitwear design, like Ann Budd's The Knitter's Handy Guide to Sweater Patterns, teaches sweater-knitting techniques to be used with any yarn or body type. But it goes even further, instructing readers on doing the math and working from a list of measurements called a fitter list, which records all key sweater measurements and is the basis of the sweater map (an annotated knitting schematic). Essential for libraries with strong knitting collections.
