I’ve barely learned how to knit, and I’m already dreaming of making sweaters. So much so, that I picked up this small Patons book at JoAnns in the yarn aisle last weekend. I knew that if I didn’t pick it up, someday when my skill is good enough to make sweaters I would not be able to find it. The patterns in this booklet are all marked as easy. The looks are classic and very up-to-date, and can be dressed up or worn with jeans. This book gives you so many options to create a sweater of your own design– collar, no collar, zipper, buttons, short, long, vest, straight sleeves, flared sleeves… It’s a wanna-be fashion designers dream! No one will believe you made it!
Ok, back to practicing – knit, purl, knit, purl – maybe next winter I’ll be wearing one of my own original sweaters!
