If you're tired of making sweaters with sleeves that are the wrong length, necklines that droop, and an overall look that's not quite right, let "Sweater Design in Plain English" come to your rescue! In clear, straightforward terms, Maggie Righetti shares her knitting know-how and good fashion sense so that no matter what your knitting level, you can overcome the fear of failure, adapt already-existing patterns, and plan and create sweaters that really fit and look terrific. Topics and techniques include: understanding the nature of yarn and pattern stitches; how to tell whether or not a sweater will look good on you - before you start; and, start-to-finish instructions for thirteen classic sweaters. Each technique is illustrated with clear diagrams, sketches, or photographs. Complete with conversion charts and a personal-measurements record-keeping section, "Sweater Design in Plain English" takes the guesswork out of every creative knitting effort.

Maggie Righetti, a TNNA-certified knitting and crochet instructor, is the author of "Knitting in Plain English" and "Crocheting in Plain English." Her neighbor and knitting buddy, Terri Shaw, is a retired teacher, lawyer, and nonprofit CEO. Maggie and Terri both live in Southern California.
