Close-Knit Family: Sweaters for Everyone You Love Melissa Leapman
A Close-Knit Family: Sweaters for Everyone You Love. Melissa Leapman, Taunton Press, 1999.
The sweaters are grouped in families, so the knitter can knit sweaters for herself, her husband, and her children that are all variations on a theme. The designs are new and different without being too untraditional or high fashion, and they use a wide variety of stitches and techniques that will appeal to whatever the knitter is in the mood for, such as intarsia, slipped stitch patterns, gansey, and cables. There are patterns in this book for knitters of all skill levels and designs for every season and climate; knit in wool, cotton, and blended yarns. Yarn substitution information allows knitters to adapt projects for their needs and budgets.
