Along with a fresh assortment of beautiful garments and accessories, you'll find advice on yarn substitutions as well as tips on how the patterns can be customized to fit all sizes. "A Handknit Romance" is the ideal design book for knitters who embrace creativity and the want to produce truly unique pieces.
