Amy writes, “Once you’ve fully embraced the sweater, you need a reference guide. One that is written in clear terms, with an index, so you can quickly look up this month’s burning sweater question and get knitting. My Ultimate Sweater Book is that reference guide. My goal is the same as ever—to help you create garments that are the best clothes you’ve ever worn.”
Amy’s clear instruction and expert tips expand the many knitting possibilities, creating the essential knitting resource for knitters everywhere. If you want to knit the perfect sweater for yourself, a friend, or a family member, Amy’s book is one you should have at your fingertips, next to your needles and yarn.
