Harry N. Abrams, Inc.
When knitting superstar Amy Herzog gets complimented on her hand-knit sweaters, the compliments are often followed by “but I could never knit that.” Now, you can! You Can Knit That is a clear, simple reference book and pattern collection that gives knitters the sweater-making confidence they need. Whether you’re knitting a sweater for the first time or seeking to expand your skills to knit sweaters in styles you’ve never tried before, this essential guide starts with basic sweater know-how and moves into instructions for knitting six must-have sweater styles—vests, all-in-one construction, drop shoulders, raglans, yokes, and set-in sleeves. Each chapter offers a less-intimidating “mini” sweater sized for a child and a selection of adult women’s patterns in 12 sizes—24 sweater patterns in all, each building on the next, to ensure success with even the most complicated sweaters.

Great book on knitting to fit and flatter. There is a general how-to section as well as example patterns of sweaters using those styles. A very nice introduction to sweater knitting.

This is a great book focused on sweaters. It has a lot of information about gauge, fiber, and fit. There are a variety of styles that will flatter a variety of body types. The photographs a good and show the pieces well. I'll definitely check this book out again.
