Little Red in the City begins with a seventy-two page reference section that will give you the tools you need to plan sweaters that fit perfectly. A great sweater will no longer be a happy accident. Included are details on:
Selecting an appropriate yarn for the garment’s purpose and design details.
Making swatches that don’t lie.
Taking measurements and choosing a size to knit.
Adapting shaping for a perfect fit.
Blocking for a professional finish.
Following is a section of detailed tutorials for some of Ysolda’s favourite techniques to incorporate into sweaters: crocheted provisional cast on; long tail tubular cast on; three ways of working short rows; and one-row buttonholes.
