If you're like most knitters, you create garments for someone else -- usually a family member. With this beautiful collection of sweaters from knitwear designer Melissa Leapman, you will find projects to delight everyone on your 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, Leapman has created practical and 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 range in difficulty from easy to advanced, so every knitter will find a wide range of interesting projects. Each sweater has complete, easy-to-follow instructions.
'Melissa Leapman's A Close-Knit Family is a wonderful collection featuring very wearable knits that fit so well into our modern, casual lifestyle. Designs for men, women, and children are all beautifully themed, and the variety of techniques presented are a treat to tempt knitters of all persuasions.'
