Custom Knits 2 by Wendy Bernard is in very good condition
In "Custom Knits 2", Wendy takes the techniques one step further, presenting patterns, formulas, tips and tricks for customising any type of knitted garment-for women, men or children. Each chapter in Custom Knits 2 begins with a tutorial and is then followed by a selection of patterns on which to practice what you learned. This book begins with an overview of how to pre-plan a sweater so that you'll know exactly how to customise the pattern. The following chapter covers easy ways to tailor the fit of a sweater, and even add elements like a hood or sleeves. The next chapter teaches knitters how to convert any pattern to a different size. In addition to the techniques, Wendy includes 25 original top-down knitting patterns that can be knit as written, or customised any way the knitter likes. As with the first book, each pattern features specific ideas for customisation and includes call-outs alerting the knitter when she has reached a point in the pattern where she can customize. With the wealth of knowledge this sequel will deliver, "Custom Knits 2" is sure to become a go-to reference and pattern book in many knitters' home libraries.
