A valuable reference book,

This review is from: Custom Knits: 25 Projects (Plus Variations) and Techniques for Customizing to Fit Your Style and Your Body (Hardcover)
I've only been knitting since early this Spring, but already I'm finding that I want to adapt patterns to suit my shape and style. I already had Stitch n' Bitch Nation on my shelf when I bought this, which goes into the art of adapting patterns, but to be honest, I found the long-winded maths-phobic approach of that book a bit off-putting. Custom Knits, in contrast offers a much more concise, relaxed approach. Each section covers a different type of sweater design, including those for which a top-down design doesn't work and there are patterns to suit a range of personal tastes, all very wearable. I can see myself knitting a few of these over the next few years.
