Reviews

It's not often that we'd suggest this might be the only pattern book you'll ever need but, flicking through it, we're tempted! Ann Budd's masterpiece, published in 2004 as a follow-up to the best-selling The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns, presents easy-to-follow charted instructions for eighteen jumpers, three in each of the six most popular constructions - drop shoulder, modified drop shoulder, raglan and seamless yoke. What's more, each style is provided in 15 sizes and in five different tensions. Add the fact that there are numerous variations to play with, and you've got more than 1500 design options! All this means that, not only is this book a definitive resource for knitting all kinds of jumpers, it's also a fantastic starting point for designing. It gives you classic wardrobe staples and then invites you to add your own imagination to create new variations. The handy 'Expanding your options' section encourages you to experiment, explaining how to make adjustments for body or sleeve length, for different tensions and for knitting in the round, as well as showing how to add stitch or colour patterns. It may not be the last pattern book you buy but, armed with this book and a little imagination, you'll have enough jumper designs to last a lifetime.-The Knitter
