Strange Brew is a guide for everyday knitters who might find designing a unique colorwork yoke a little bit daunting without a road map.
Written by Alexa Ludeman and Emily Wessel of Tin Can Knits, Strange Brewoffers up a collection of 8 sweaters and 4 accessories in addition to the "design-your-own" yoke sweater recipe that is truly the heart of the book. Whether you prefer knitting bottom-up or top-down, this book will guide the way, including instructions for 3 gauges and 25 sizes for the whole family, from baby through women's 4XL plus male-specific sizing too.
The recipe includes:
Instructions for designing your sweater top-down or bottom-up
An overview of round yoke design
A "plug and play" round yoke guideline pattern (just follow the pattern - no math!)
Nearly 100 stitch patterns to get you started
A "wedge design" strategy for the more adventurous knitter
8 sweaters + 4 accessories
patterns sized from baby to big (0-6 months to adult 4XL)
