Customer Review

on June 12, 2009
If you enjoy knitting seamless garments then this book is a must. It looks a little dated on the cover but don't let that put you off as it is truly timeless. Written in a style similar to that of Elizabeth Zimmermann, there are no actual patterns here, but open instructions for you to use any weight of yarn with any stitch pattern you like to construct your garment. Starting off with the top down raglan, Barbara Walker takes you through just about every possible way to construct a top down seamless garment from sweaters through capes, skirts and even trousers along the way. She tells you how to knit them so they fit properly regardless of size or body shape and all are seamless of course.

You don't need to be a designer to use this book, it makes you your own designer, and frees you from the constraints of commercial patterns.

If you like to follow a written pattern, or are a beginning knitter then perhaps this book is not for you (yet!), but if you have a sense of adventure and love to knit seamlessly or have trouble knitting things that fit properly then I can't recommend this book enough.
