Best-selling knitting author Sue Stratford has designed twelve fantastic Christmas sweaters - six for adults and six for children - in this fun and festive book. One basic sweater pattern is provided in eight different sizes - four for adults and four for children, each with its own pattern and with both US and UK yarn names and needle sizes provided. There are six eye-catching motifs to decorate the adult sweaters and six matching motifs for the children's sweaters, including some fun, novelty designs that will appeal to the current trend for holiday sweaters such as a jolly Santa Claus, snowman and a tasty Christmas pudding, as well as traditional winter classics such as festive forest trees and a traditional Nordic Fair-Isle design that will stand the test of time. Each motif is accompanied by large, easy-to-follow charts printed on 24 fold-out sheets in the centre of the book. These can be removed for easy reference, then stored in the handy pocket at the back of the book so there is no chance of them getting lost. The sweaters are all knitted in Aran yarn with large needles, so they knit up quickly and easily into soft, cosy sweaters that will keep the whole family warm on cold winter days.
