Knit your own couture wardrobe!

As a knitter, you know the appeal of creating a piece that can go from home to office, from weekday to weekend--and, most importantly, that looks flattering on your figure. But that can be easier said than done! Until now.

Knitwear designer Alex Capshaw-Taylor has created a collection of 19 knitted garments and accessories featuring timeless, high-fashion designs that are refreshingly easy to wear.

In Dressed in Knits, you’ll experiment with a variety of techniques including multidirectional knitting, colorwork (intarsia and stranded), cabling, and more. Unique to this guide is helpful information devoted to educating knitters on couture details that produce designer quality finished pieces. Alex will demonstrate proper seeming, picking up stitches, applying beads, turning a hem, creating pockets, steeking, adding zippers to knitwear, and more. Helpful tips on styling finished garments will also be sprinkled throughout the book, like how adding a belt to a piece can change the silhouette giving it a totally different look.

Dressed in Knits isn’t just another knitting book. It’s your fashion-forward guide to a whole new wardrobe.
