Here's how Interweave describes the book:
With Knitting Plus, you’ll explore basic pullover and cardigan styles, including raglans, set-in sleeves, drop shoulders, seamless yokes, and dolmans in 15 stylish projects. Knitting Plus thoroughly outlines each element of the garment, while offering key tips on sweater measurements and tailoring for a custom fit. Included throughout are simple, easy-to-use templates of each construction type to make alterations and adaptations quick and simple.Many months ago, Kathy Zimmerman, my personal knitting guru, told me she'd submitted a design for Knitting Plus. She described it as cabled and shawl collared, but she didn't have a photograph so I was left to imagine the design for myself. Imagine my delight when she sent me three pictures of her beautiful sweater, the Waltham Cabled Cardigan. I absolutely LOVE it.
Knit in Louet Eastport Alpaca, the Waltham Cabled Cardigan features, as Kathy says, "rope cables in grid-like panels combined with ribs for an eye-catching, elongating, vertical look. The modified drop shoulders, V-neck styling, and a three-button closure add a casual sporty touch. The dramatic 1x1 ribbed shawl collar balances the lower body and textured graphics of the cables. The luxurious alpaca-blend yarn provides drape and softness for a classic "sweatery" feel."
Kathy always says that great finishing turns a homemade sweater into a handmade one and she's right. Just look at this shoulder! I thought I was a pretty good finisher, but I'm wrong. This beautiful seam gives me something to aspire to.
