More information...

  • 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.
