Knitting Pattern Essentials: Adapting and Drafting&hellip by Sally Melville

I have always enjoyed Sally Melville's books, but this one is especially appreciated. After finishing yet another sweater that looked awful on me, I almost resigned myself to knitting socks for the rest of my life. Then this book came to the rescue!
