Books Info:

Light  free pdf Best-selling author Vicki Square returns, this time creating beautiful garments made from comfortable fibers and lighter yarns. These are more than simply projects to make-they are knits to truly live in. The 20 patters of Light and Layered Knits work in all climates, can be layered and removed at will, and are equally at home in a casual or workplace setting. Working with lighter weight yarns in fibers such as silk, linen, cotton, and bamboo, Vicki creates pieces that will appeal to knitters of all ages. These are knits that are meant to be worn every day, combine polish with comfort, and practicality with style. These are versatile wardrobe staples-shells, fluid tops, draped tunics, light cardigans, wrap sweaters, and more-that reflect the way that women dress today. What's more, most of them are conveniently sized for up to a 46" to 48" bust circumference. Vicki takes a holistic approach to knitting here: her goal is to offer the reader a functional, multi-purpose wardrobe, not merely a collection of individual patterns. Many garments are customizable-sleeves can be added, lengthened, or removed. Garments can be worn alone or layered over one another. She offers graphic color through intarsia, slip stitch, and stranded-knitting detail, and offers a variety of shaping techniques (increases, decreases, gauge, and stitch patterns) to help create a garment more or less fitted as the wearer prefers. Short-rows are also used to help shape a garment-adding volume and drape. A restrained use of ribbon, ladder, and other novelty yarns create interesting textures with little effort. Finally, techniques such as applied i-cord, 3-needle bind-off, and slip-stitch crochet seaming give the projects a polished finish. Sidebars will discuss the properties of warm-weather fibers, creating texture, working with color, and stitch selection. Her emphasis is on knitting year-round wardrobe staples that can be worn in a variety of climates-geographically, or simply among home, car, outside, and office! She pays special attention to creating fluid fabrics that are comfortable and flattering to a variety of body types.
