Chic Knits for Layering
In the follow-up to her bestselling Hattitude and Cowl Girls, knitwear designer Cathy Carron offers fashion-forward knitters 35 designs for boleros, shrugs, cropped cardies, and short wraps, along with instructions on how to adapt patterns to your own measurements. Carron also includes a brief look at the various forms explored, considers yarn and stitch pattern, gives advice on adjusting for length, and offers ideas for styling short knits. From a ruffled bolero in a “painter's palette” of gorgeous hand-painted yarns to a “short 'n sweet” cashmere and silk capelet, these designs are as pleasing to the fingers as they are to the eyes!
