Knitting guru Norah Gaughan shows you how to make rectangles, squares, and simple shapes—then fold, twist, and pleat them to create unique, fashionable clothes and accessories Simple shapes are ideal for the novice knitter, but the clever folds and fastenings of Knit, Fold, Pleat, Repeat will intrigue the experienced crowd too. These techniques are easy to learn, and the design possibilities—and new combinations that come to light once you begin—are nearly endless.

Every pattern has a gorgeous high-fashion style, and the projects are so addictive to knit—you may find yourself making the same garment in new colors and yarns so you'll have one for each season. The book includes thirty-six patterns in all, each with variations.

Knit to flatter and fit! It sounds simple. But if every knitter knew how to do it, the unflattering sweater and the top that doesn’t fit would be things of the past. Unfortunately, that’s not the world we live in, and knitwear designer Sally Melville knows why: too many knitters choose the wrong pattern for their shape and size! After decades of teaching, designing, and writing about knitting, Sally Melville knows how to customize knitting patterns to fit a wide variety of body types perfectly. With a little planning and subtle alterations, you can make a garment that is just right for you! In Mother-Daughter Knits, Sally shares this knowledge for the first time. Together with her daughter, fellow knitwear designer Caddy Melville Ledbetter, Sally demystifies the process of picking the right pattern and modifying it to your body’s advantage. Whether you’re a beginning or experienced knitter, young or mature, an hourglass or a triangle, Sally and Caddy have you covered! The authors have designed 30 customizable garments for women of all shapes, heights, and ages, including: • a slimming Jackie Kennedy—style Camelot coat, • a reversible tank top with a scoop neck, • a Jane Austen—inspired jacket with an empire waist, • a flirty top that enhances feminine curves. With fascinating insight, practical advice, and patterns for both classic and avant-garde tastes, Mother-Daughter Knits just might be the most useful guide a knitter could have–whether she’s young or just young at heart.
