5.0 out of 5 stars Finally! A guide to sweater pattern making I can understand
Reviewed in the United States on March 6, 2019
I've made Amy Herzog sweater patterns before and loved them, so this book looked intriguing and on a whim I bought it. Frankly, it exceeded my expectations. For background, I've never made my own sweater pattern and have only made minor modifications to existing patterns, but I've knit about 15 sweaters from pullovers to cardigans, fingering to bulky yarn. I am somewhat adventurous but follow patterns rigorously. I often wish for a certain type of pattern to create something out of wool in my stash only to be hampered by looking and looking for an appropriate pattern sometimes to no avail.

Amy has done a fantastic job of explaining (in plain English) what everything means (positive ease, negative ease, why/when a set-in sleeve vs. a raglan) Take a real basic, how to make and measure a gauge swatch: her approach is so refreshing in which she explains how use your swatch and the way you knit to figure out how to make the pattern come out successfully (this is huge!). She begins with clear step-by-step instructions for 4 sweater types: drop-shoulder, raglan, yoke and set-in-sleeve. The instructions are concise but just right with excellent drawings to illustrate the points. She moves on from construction of these sweaters to making adjustments, then refining your work with embellishments and finally patterns that can be done in different weight yarns plus adding turtle necks or hoods. Amy makes suggestions for what kind of yarn weight and type (alpaca vs. light/heavy wool, etc.) work best for what type of sweater (yokes, for example, which she describes as "poncho-like", work differently than drop shoulder--clear if you stop and think about it but I hadn't). The light bulbs went off.

With this book you can ensure a good fit of any pattern (we knew this was measuring and math but now it's clear what to measure (where and how) and then what to do with the measurements; modify existing patterns; or even confidently make your own pattern from scratch.

I'm feeling very positive that the lovely spring green DK wool in my stash (for which no pattern has been suitable) will now get made soon thanks to Amy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Resource
Reviewed in the United States on January 3, 2020
I’ve completed one sweater since I bought the book and am planning others. It helped my modify the existing pattern to better fit me. I was able to adjust the length, pocket placement and front and have the sweater come out the way I envisioned. I haven’t designed a sweater from the ground up yet, but I have a better understanding of how to do so because of this book.
