Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The earliest sweaters, at least those we would recognize today, were first knitted sometime between the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries, evolving into cardigans, pullovers, hoodies, wraps, and many other favorite styles and techniques created in countries and traditions all over the globe. Knitting Sweaters from Around the World brings together a sampling of these sweaters from Scandinavia, Europe, the United Kingdom, Ireland, the East, and the West, featuring patterns from well-known designers like Beth Brown-Reinsel, Melissa Leapman, Hélène Magnússon, Candace Eisner Strick, and many others.
 
Some of the designs in this book, such as the Cowichan-Inspired Swallows and Ivy Wrap Cardigan, the Men’s Fair Isle pullover, and the Eriskay Gansey, are very traditional garments, allowing you to try the same stitches and techniques used by the knitters who originally invented these designs. Other sweaters, such as the Bulgarian Roses Intarsia Cardigan and the Turkish Delight Sweater, were inspired by patterns and stitches used on accessories in a particular country or region. And some sweaters, such as the Men’s Kimono (which was adapted from traditional woven clothing) or the Kinloch Aran Pullover (which is an updated version of an early-twentieth-century idea), are modern knitting designs.
 
Browse through these pages, then pick up your yarn and needles, cast on, and celebrate the accomplishments of knitters from around the world.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I decided to buy this book and do a knit along with ladies from my group. The first pattern we decided to do clearly had not been test knitted. The chart and the pattern are not the same garment. We are all very experienced knitters, and were fortunate to be able to completely re write the pattern. We will not be trying any other patterns from the book, we will not recommend this to anyone else. A real shame as the picture look so pretty.

This is a book is useful for very experienced knitters (it should be mentioned in the advertisment).I missed some more modern variations of these traditional exquisit forms of creating a master piece.Overpriced ,since there are many other cheaper options.Therefore only a moderate my rating.
