In Custom Knits 2, Wendy Bernard picks up where she left off in the bestselling Custom Knits (published by STC Craft), empowering knitters to delve even further into customization. Each chapter begins with a tutorial on the featured topicâsuch as converting patterns to fit men, women, or children, or tricks and techniques for substituting yarn, gauge, and stitch patternsâand is followed by a selection of Bernardâs fashionable designs on which to try them. The patterns can be knit as-written or customized; specific prompts for customization are included throughout. Custom Knits 2 concludes with formulas for making garments without a pattern, using only body measurements as a guideâa graduation of sorts for adventurous knitters.
