Downside up and sideways circles ...

If you ever wanted to knit a garment but have a horror of sewing seams and knitting yards of boring ribbed edgings, this book is for you. From the first amazingly simple 'provisional cast on' to the finishing touches, this book turns conventional knitting on its head and for me at least, transforms the construction of a garment into something beautifully logical and labour saving. Following one of the patterns, I'm transforming some very fine mohair into a wisp of well-fitting femininity for one of my Daughters and finding it genuine fun. There are hints for substitute yarns - so often overlooked - and I too will be knitting most of the patterns in the book.
