Summary 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 But finding sweater patterns that aren't boxy, ugly, or outdated can be a challenge, and even then, the directions are often so complicated and confusing knitters don't even want to cast on.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 colourful 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 colour photos. In it, you get: 20 stylish sweater patterns for various skill levels, from newer knitters to more experienced stitchers; tips for understanding yarn weights, choosing the best yarn for a sweater, and calculating how much is needed; easy advice on shaping and sizing for the most figure-flattering finished sweaters; pointers on casting on, binding off, assembly, and finishing techniques; lessons on stitching sleeves, necklines, collars, hoods, pockets, and more; guidance on reading charts, understanding gauge, and avoiding common pitfalls; adorable sweater patterns for babies, toddlers, and children; fun and funky, sophisticated, and cozy classic sweaters for women; and masculine patterns for pullovers and jackets for men.
