I am an avid knitter, but as a (relatively) young woman, I like my projects to be fun, fashionable and most importantly flattering. The designs in this book are unusual and stylish. There is something to suit all tastes and the pattern instructions are clear and precise. I love the designs so much I actually have two of them on the go at the moment!

This book has a range of patterns that compliment different female body shapes, and shows different ways in which to shape the garment through making the decrease/increase a feature of the design.
It does NOT tell you how to modify a given pattern to suit your specific body measurements. I guess this is what I was hoping for - some helpful hints and tips on top of the maths, given the title!
Also note that all yarns the patterns are based on are US, not UK, so you will have to modify them or your tester to fit UK available yarns.

Finally a knitwear designer that understands female body! Have been looking for book like this for long time and if I had to have only one knitting book, this would be the one. So glad I bought it, it elevates knitwear from something just providing the warmth to truly fashionable, elegant garments. Instructions are detailed and easy to understand, photos are helpful and the book is written in plain English (unlike some other knitting books). Thank you.

This is a lovely book. Good pictures, clear explanations and details. There were loads of lovely patterns in it that I will be working my way through. I am sure knitting lots of the items in here will give you good experience on how to shape better, but I was expecting more instruction about how to modify patterns to work for my shape. For me, the best book I have found on that so far is Amy Herzog's "Knit To Flatter" which is marvellous on that side of things.Knit to Flatter

I have been knitting for years but often have problems with sizing etc. but this book gives easy to follow instructions and good tips. It informs without seeming condescending.

Arrived in time, well packaged. will use this seller again.
