The exceptionally helpful book provides a comprehensive recipe for making a top-down, no-sewing raglan in your size and in the yarn of your choice, from sportweight to chunky. The patterns come in finished bust sizes from 44 to 61 inches and include options for waist and hip shaping, A-line choices, sleeve circumference adjustments, body length options and much, much more.
But thisbook is more than just a recipe. You'll love the designs, which are all top-down and no-sew (yes, Teresa, there is a Santa Claus). Deb gives us a go-to cardigan option in the Basic Cardigan. This is the one I'm going to make; in fact, I've already started.
The Panel Cardigan comes in two different motifs, one lace and one cabled. These two beautiful sweaters below show a summer and winter version of the Panel Cardigan.
I predict the most popular design will be the Lace Frock. It reminds me a bit of the February Lady Sweater, but Deb's lace skirt version actually fits! If you've ever wanted to make the ubiquitous February Lady, make this lady instead.
Oh! And meet Deb. Here she is modeling the cap sleeve version of the Lace Frock.
You can purchase Deb's book from Patternfish; it comes in both soft cover and electronic versions. After you buy the book, come join our new Deb's Need A Plus Cardigan knitalong on Ravelry. The knitalong begins September 15 so you've got time to get the book and your yarn, too.
And, last but not least, I'm doing another book giveaway! I've got one electronic copy of Need a Plus Cardigan? that I'll be happy to send the lucky winner. Just leave a comment below telling me the sweater from this book that you'd most like to make. I'll pick a winner on August 30. Good luck!
