Created for knitters who want standard sweater patterns in a variety of sizes and gauges, as well as those who want a template from which to develop their own designs, this book provides easy-to-follow charted instructions for 18 sweaters, three in each of the six most popular sweaters constructions. Each style is then provided in 15 sizes ranging from toddler to large adult, then further divided into six possible gauges: 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 stitches per inch combining for 90 options for each of the six styles, or 540 patterns in all. The cardigan and neckline variations make for more than 1,000 patterns. Detailed schematics for finished dimensions are included, along with a glossary of techniques and a chapter on design considerations. This is a definitive resource for the passionate sweater knitter.

This book allows you to create a completely custom sweater - all you do is plug in your measurements, then choose the details - stitch patterns, shoulders, neck opening, sleeve length - and the math is already done. Helpfully, the book comes in a hardback, spiral-bound format that makes it easy to lay flat. ( )

great resource

I love this compendium of patterns. In essence, you have the tool here to make any sweater you can imagine in any of several styles--blocky, set-in sleeve, saddle-shouldered, round-yoked, neck-down raglan. Combined with Nicky Epstein's Knitting Beyond the Edge, this book could constitute a complete pattern library. While it can be confusing to use the charts jumping from point to point (I personally recommend copying the pages you need each time and highlighting the correct counts and sizing information so as to avoid critical mistakes), the method of swatching, using formula, and creating your own masterpiece is irresistable to the creative knitter.
