By Alex Capshaw-Taylor

Are you looking to knit unique pieces that go from home to office, from weekday to weekend-and, most importantly, that flatter your figure? Look no further! Knitwear designer Alex Capshaw-Taylor has put together a collection of 19 knitted garments and accessories to fill your closet with custom projects just for you.

Dressed in Knits features timeless, high-fashion knitwear designs that are refreshingly easy to wear and, with Alex’s help, you’ll appreciate the information devoted to teaching you how to get couture details in your finished projects. You’ll learn how to properly seam, pick up stitches, apply beads, turn a hem, create a pocket, steek, and more. All while knitting stunning designs that cover a variety of knitting techniques including multidirectional knitting, colorwork (intarsia and stranded), cabling and more. Plus, Alex has sprinkled helpful tips on styling finished garments 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.

Dressed In Knits, a wonderful collection
There is a wealth of information here on many techniques, but most of all there are such lovely patterns. Directions are well written and precise, easy to follow. However, the designs are intended for an experienced knitter and not a beginner. I like the way things are grouped into categories, or styles, with clear descriptions of them.

Lovely and useful
I have not yet knitted anything from my purchased book. I did skim through the patterns and they look to be up to Interweave's high standards. They are easy to read and well written. While I definitely am drawn to a few patterns over others, I recommend this book for all of the patterns, even if it's only to learn a new stitch, or how to put a particular kind of project together.
Also included in the book's first chapters are instructions for different techniques. Cast on/off, grommets, selvedges, button hole bands, beading, and steeks. A lot of knowledge offered AND patterns to work with.
