With Kristin's guidance, readers will learn to manipulate motifs into unique garments (sweaters, cardigans, shrugs, and more) and accessories (hats, cowls, and shawls) that are figure-flattering and fun to make!
Readers will learn innovative methods of of garment shaping, such as strategically placing triangles between square motifs to shape everything from a raglan pullover to a gorgeous shawl without breaking the yarn, leaving fewer tails to weave in.
