Review: Designing Knitwear

User Review  - Sheila - Goodreads

Good reference on designing basic sweater shapes and sleeve types. The example patterns are maybe a little dated (shoulder pads?!? very 1980s). Or maybe just not to my taste. But the basic info on how to shape sweaters is well-presented and useful. Read full review
