Stitching a sweater is a rite of passage for knitters. It means your skills are advanced enough that you can read and follow a pattern, understand the shaping and sizing involved, and have the stamina to actually finish the project. But finding sweater patterns that aren''t boxy, ugly, or outdated can be a challenge, and even then, the directions are often so complicated and confusing knitters don''t even want to cast on. Idiot''s Guides: Knitting Sweaters is a clear and colorful guide that offers 20 chic and stylish patterns for knitting pullovers, cardigans, shrugs, and more, all featuring easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions and hundreds of inspirational color photos.
