Sweaters are a fashion staple. Versatile, cosy and often the item you treasure and never tire of, they can be worn all-year round, under a coat in the winter or as an extra layer on a chilly night during the summer.
In this fresh and modern guide to knitting, Emma Wright will show you how to create your own stylish sweater collection. Starting with the basics, learn how to knit three key silhouettes: square, raglan and set-in-sleeve. Once you have mastered these core shapes, the possibilities are endless. Emma’s playful approach will show you how to confidently mix-and-match a variety of necklines, sleeves and bold colourways to add your own creative flair.
Packed with stunning lifestyle photography, this book will take you through all the essentials as you learn to make up the 15 beautiful designs. Through Emma’s clear instructions and expert tips, KIY: Knit-It-Yourself will show you how to enter the wonderful world of knitting, whether you are new to the craft or already have a couple of projects under your belt.
