In This Chapter

^ Putting your new knitting skills into practice ^ Knitting a sweater, a baby's layette, and a jacket ^ Varying a pattern aking accessories is a great way to develop your knitting skills and explore creative possibilities, but making a soft, attractive garment to wrap yourself in is another kind of satisfaction entirely.

The sweaters in this chapter use simple shapes and garment construction to introduce you to sweater-making and enable you to apply the techniques and skills you've picked up in this part of the book. You can see them photographed in the color insert.

The sweaters are basic with detailed instructions. You can knit up all three quickly on relatively big needles. Make them as they are or as a springboard for trying ideas from earlier chapters. Or you can work up one of the variations listed at the end of each pattern.

In the "Materials and vital statistics" sections, we list the specific yarns used in the sweaters you see photographed in the color insert, but feel free to substitute any other yarn that meets the gauge. Or you can take what you know about gauge and dimensions and apply it to these patterns, writing in your own numbers to achieve the fit you want.
