to Flatter is a guide for the hand knitter who wants to produce
wardrobe staples. It’s a way to understand how sweaters change the
appearance of your underlying shape. And it’s a way to use that
understanding to (since we’re creating these things out of sticks &
string) get sweaters that not only give the right visual impression, but
fit us perfectly.
chock full of beautiful sweaters designed for all different body
shapes, and crammed with modification ideas if something isn’t quite
right for you. There’s an entire chapter on determining your own shape
and taking proper measurements, and another on the math of
modifications. It’s the very first step toward creating sweaters that
work for you.
