Create fluid, fashionable garments you'll wear over and over again!
Best-selling author Vicki Square returns, this time creating beautiful garments made from comfortable fibers and light yarns. These are more than simply projects to make - they are truly knits to live in.
The 19 designs in Light & Layered Knits work in all climates, can be layered and removed at will, and are equally at home in a casual or workplace setting. Working with lightweight yarns in fibers such as silk, linen, cotton, and bamboo, Vicki creates pieces that will appeal to knitters of all ages.
These versatile wardrobe staples - shells, fluid tops, draped tunics, light cardigans, wrap sweaters, and more - reflect the way that women dress today. What's more, most of them are conveniently sized up to a 46-48" bust circumference. You'll love these sophisticated designs for every season! Softcover; 160 pages; Interweave.
This book should be subtitled "Knits for Californians" - it has some wonderful basic shells and tees and some rather far-out but very appealing models: something for everyone in yarns that are wearable year-round in a warmer climate. Yarn substitution is easy. It has become my basic design and stash-busting go-to.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
