Most knitters create garments for someone else, usually a family member. With this beautiful collection of sweaters from knitwear designer Melissa Leapman, knitters will find projects to delight everyone on their gift list. Each chapter has a basic design that has been interpreted into different sweaters for adults and children. Instead of taking one sweater and changing the size, Melissa has created different designs from a similar theme for each family member. By not merely reworking the same sweater in many different sizes, these projects will keep even the most prolific knitter engaged.

The sweaters are grouped in families, so the knitter can knit sweaters for herself, her husband, and her children that are all variations on a theme. The designs are new and different without being too untraditional or high fashion, and they use a wide variety of stitches and techniques that will appeal to whatever the knitter is in the mood for, such as intarsia, slipped stitch patterns, gansey, and cables. There are patterns in this book for knitters of all skill levels and designs for every season and climate; knit in wool, cotton, and blended yarns. Yarn substitution information allows knitters to adapt projects for their needs and budgets.
