When knitting superstar Amy Herzog gets complimented on her hand-knit sweaters, the compliments are often followed by "but I could never knit that." Now, you can! You Can Knit That is a clear, simple reference book and pattern collection that gives knitters the sweater-making confidence they need. Whether you're knitting a sweater for the first time or seeking to expand your skills to knit sweaters in styles you've never tried before, this essential guide starts with basic sweater know-how, and moves into instructions for knitting six must-have sweater styles--vests, integrated sleeves, drop shoulders, raglans, yokes and set-in sleeves. Each chapter offers a less intimidating "mini" sweater sized for a child and a selection of adult women's patterns in 12 sizes--24 sweater patterns in all, each building on the next, to ensure success with even the most complicated construction.
Amy Herzog is the author of Knit Wear Love and Knit to Flatter and the creator of the Fit to Flatter online series. She teaches courses on Craftsy and in yarn shops countrywide and her sweater designs have been featured in Twist Collective, Knitscene, Interweave Knits, Knitty and more.
