knit, Swirl! Uniquely Flattering, One Piece, One Seam Swirl Jackets; Foreword by Cat Bordhi


Within the lavishly photographed pages of knit, Swirl!, designer Sandra McIver presents 18 designs that flatter all figures, each based on the innovative one piece, one seam circular construction she calls a “Swirl”. Using simple knitting techniques, she creates elegant sweater jackets in four dramatic silhouettes and three flexible sizes.

 

 

As clever a book as it is gorgeous, knit, Swirl! presents a masterful use of simple knitting techniques to create a garment that – as I can personally attest – feels magnificent, showcases yarn to its fullest, and flatters all figures. Sandra’s Swirl is, indeed, the new Miracle Sweater. Clara Parkes—Knitter’s Review

This book may be one of the most exciting and brilliant knitting concepts I have ever seen. Sandra McIver has presented the knitting world with a unique twist on the circle sweater and elevated the idea to whole new heights. Knitty.com

An instant classic and a true treasure in our genre. Jared Flood—Brooklyn Tweed

After pawing through this gorgeous collection of “Swirls”—McIver’s term for her circular-shawl-cum-jackets—it’s hard to imagine that you wouldn’t get mobbed at a wool festival should you decide to knit one. Not only does it drape and move as you swan about, it also allows you to incorporate fancy stitchwork, weave in ribbons, show off flashy hand-paints and generally bend it to your will. Vogue Knitting

I believe this sweater is destined to become one of the most oft-knit, beloved and reliable knitting designs in history. Cat Bordhi—author of New Pathways for Sock Knitters and Personal Footprints for Insouciant Sock Knitters

Stunning garments, beautiful photography, and endless variations on an innovative theme – this book is flawless. Cookie A—author of Sock Innovation and Knit. Sock. Love.

The Knitter's Book of Socks: The Yarn Lover's Ultimate Guide to Creating Socks That Fit Well, Feel Great, and Last a Lifetime

A sock is a work of wonder. No other knitted garment has as many structural demands or endures as much wear and tear. The humble sock must defy gravity, suffer the confines of our shoes, and endure being trampled on all day long.
 
All too often, the root cause of a sock’s triumph or failure is the yarn itself. In The Knitter’s Book of Socks, Clara Parkes shows you how to knit socks from yarn up, following the sock yarn life cycle from its foundations to its final moments on a proud foot. By understanding a sock’s basic needs—elasticity, strength, and moisture management—you’ll learn how to play with these tools like building blocks, confidently combining fiber, twist, ply, pattern, and clever stitch tricks to construct your perfect pair of socks.
 
To help put these principles into practice, The Knitter’s Book of Socks also offers 20 fresh, original patterns from today’s sock-design luminaries, including Cookie A, Cat Bordhi, Ann Budd, Nancy Bush, Anne Hanson, and Melissa Morgan-Oakes. The socks presented here run the gamut from simple knit-and-purl combinations suitable for beginners to innovative designs with lush colorwork, swirling cables, and delicate lace.
 
Understanding the elements of yarn is the first step on every successful sock knitting journey. With this book as your guide, you’ll learn how to make any sock yarn shine and love every pair of socks you knit.
