Custom Crocheted Sweaters: make garments that really fit

NO QUESTION, CUTOM SWEATERS ARE MORE FLATTERING THAN ALL OTHERS.  But if you love to crochet, there's another reason why you'll appreciate them.  When you're able to adapt a pattern to fit your figure or suit your sense of style, you're in control of the project, taking it to the next level because your creativity has come into play.  

Now one of the top designers shares the most important techniques you need to know in this book, the only one currently available that specifically focuses on the construction and fit of crocheted sweaters.  

Dora Ohrenstein's designs have appeared in Interweave Crochet, knit.1, and Crochet Today! magazines.  She is the author of Creating Crochet Fabric and the founder and editor of the webzine Crochet Insider (www.crochetinsider.com), which features interviews with industry leaders, textile artists, and designers.
