How do we know a sweater will fit and look good without trying it on first? That's the biggest challenge in knitting. We can't try anything on until we've made it.
This week I look at two new books that approach the concept of sweaters that fit and flatter from two completely different angles. One does so through patient teaching about yarns, swatching, measuring, and modifying. The other relies on one singularly extraordinary pattern to do all the fitting. Meet Little Red in the City and Knit Swirl.
