Description

In this follow-up to Knit to Flatter, author Amy Herzog is back with more real-talk for knitters. In Knit Wear Love, she guides us through picking a base pattern that not only works for our inherent shape, but also suits our size and style—all with the skill of a top-notch teacher and designer and the honesty and humor of a BFF. Known for her uncanny ability to simplify what might initially seem complex, Herzog masterminded for Knit Wear Love an easy mix-and-match pattern system that allows us to choose among the eight key sweater forms (pullover, cardigan, vest, cowl, tunic, wrap, tank, and bolero/shrug); eight fashion styles (modern, classic, romantic, sporty, bohemian, avant-garde, vintage, and casual); a trove of customization details; ten sizes; and three gauges of yarn. The result? Sweaters we can knit with confidence, wear with pride, and love for many years to come.

        Starred review from April 1, 2015

        Herzog's first book, Knit To Flatter, revolutionized the way today's knitters think about--and fit--handknit sweaters. Her second title builds on the information presented in that title, with the focus broadened to include not only fitting handknits but also customization based on personal style. Each "meta-pattern" (essentially, a sweater style, such as a pullover or a vest) is presented with a variety of customizations intended to suit an individual knitter's fashion (e.g., romantic, bohemian, casual). For example, the cardigan meta-pattern contains options for different yarn weights and directions for cardigans in three different styles--vintage, casual, and classic--on the same pattern. Knitters choose their path and follow the directions for each. The meta-patterns also contain a worksheet (which can be downloaded from Herzog's website) to put all of the measurements, stitch counts, and shaping instructions in one place. A generous range of sizes is included, with bust sizes ranging from 30" to 54." Additionally, Herzog provides guidance on choosing the best styles for a variety of body types. Fit is a technical topic, and Herzog explores it in great detail, but in a way that doesn't overwhelm or bore. And she's not just a strong designer, she's an exceptionally solid writer as well, with clear explanations and instructions that build confidence without going over-the-top. VERDICT This classic-in-the-making will inspire knitters to make sweaters that fit well and suit their personal style.

        Author Herzog has two definite goals in mind. She wants knitters to find sweater styles they love and then learn to knit those sweaters so they fit really well. To this end, she has readers take a quiz that invites them to think about what they like in a sweater. And not just sweaters they'd enjoy knitting, but also sweaters they'd enjoy wearing. She then explains several basic styles: , including avant-garde, bohemian, classic, and vintage. Herzog then shows how to do eight different patterns (pullover, cardigan, vest, cowl, tunic, wrap, tank, and bolero) customized to the different styles. There is also extensive explanation of how to construct (and deconstruct) a sweater to ensure proper fit. This may be more than beginning knitters want to know, but sweater knitters (especially those who have finished a sweater that doesn't fit) will find the information invaluable. There are many charts and photos, and kudos to the book's creators for using models of various sizes so readers have a visual of how the garments will look when worn.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2015, American Library Association.)
