Adapting basic sweater patterns for personal preferences and measurements is the focus of this step-by-step guidebook that helps knitters refashion knitting schematics. The designs, illustrations, and photos demonstrate how to adjust patterns to different styles so that any knitter can customize sweater patterns into unique creations. Challenging projects--ranging from sweaters and vests to pullovers and jackets--and easy-to-follow instructions illustrate the basic elements of sweater design to inspire knitters at all levels. Learning how to fit the bodice; change yarns, proportions, neckline styles, sleeve length, and color and stitch patterns; and add collars and edgings will give knitters the confidence to alter any pattern to meet their needs.

This book was ok. As a beginning knitter, there was some good information in here about drafting and altering patterns, specifically shoulder/arm variations and neckline shape.

What it did NOT have, and what I was really looking for was information on how to adjust fit through the body. As a book that mostly discusses women's sweater creation, you'd think they would discuss waist shaping, bust shaping, and fitting through the hips and bum.

I felt that it was pretty essential that a book that calls itself a knit-to-fit workshop should have included some actual fitting modifications for body shape.

Lots of guidance for fit and design as well as nice colourwork.
