    This book explains how to fit your knitting projects by first explaining the body taking measurements and then calculating fit She also shows how knitting swatches first will show a completed fit and give the knitter some practice in perfecting the patterns She uses complicated patterns in here and the projects are not what I call simple They include lacework cables color changes She also explains how to piece together the knitted parts such as sleeves and bodies of the sweaters and coats If you are a beginner knitting the swatches may help you become of an expert

    DNFIt's a decent book actually but I'm past it; I kept turning the pages thinking Yes I know this and this and this I guess I've read on this topic than I thought It's probably pretty good for less experienced knitters
