Summary

Summary

Knit your sweaters in one piece--from the top down, from cuff to cuff, or from back to front--for the whole family, with minimal seaming required!

Written by renowned knitting author and expert Margaret Hubert, One-Piece Knits offers charted patterns sized from toddler to adult and in multiple gauges for classic pullovers and cardigans in four styles: top-down (both raglan and yoke), side-over (from one sleeve edge to the other), and back-to-front (from back waist to front waist, then picking up stitches at the shoulders to knit the sleeves).

Additional patterns for each style feature alternate stitches , simple colorwork , and neckline and sleeve variations . A helpful resources section offers guidance on basic techniques .

With one-piece knits, you can knit classic sweaters for the whole family--from every direction!
