The first two books in the Custom Knits Series focus on techniques for customizing top-down sweaters. Each chapter begins with a tutorial on the featured topic-such as converting patterns to fit men, women, or children, or tricks and techniques for substituting yarn, gauge, and stitch patterns-and is followed by a selection of Bernard's fashionable designs on which to try them. Custom Knits Accessories showcases the ever-popular quick-knits: hats, scarves, gloves, mitts, socks, and more. Each of Bernard's 25 sassy-chic patterns offers specific ideas for customization-from switching out yarns to personalizing fit and style details-and fun, glamorous photographs show off the finished pieces. Also included are formulas for knitting all types of designs without a pattern, using a single body measurement as a starting point. In true Custom Knits style, Bernard encourages knitters to unleash their inner designer every step of the way.
