Part pattern collection, part resource book, in Little Red in the City Ysolda shares all her tips for successful sweaters that perfectly fit your body.
Little Red in the City begins with a seventy-two page reference section that will give you the tools you need to plan sweaters that fit perfectly. A great sweater will no longer be a happy accident.
Included are details on:
Selecting an appropriate yarn for the garment's purpose and design details.
Making swatches that don't lie.
Taking measurements and choosing a size to knit.
Adapting shaping for a perfect fit.
Blocking for a professional finish.
Following is a section of detailed tutorials for some of Ysolda's favourite techniques to incorporate into sweaters: crocheted provisional cast on; long tail tubular cast on; three ways of working short rows; and one-row buttonholes.
The collection is available as a printed book and an ebook. All printed book purchases include access to the ebook. Every pattern in the collection can also be purchased individually — no more having to buy a whole book when you know you’ll only knit one pattern, although of course buying the collection as a whole is better value.
