Any parent can tell you that every child has his or her own personal style.  For knitters, this translates into a potential difficulty with patterns.  Finding a pattern that’s just right for Johnny or Susie can be a real challenge.  Pick the Pieces, by Lorna Miser, boldly addresses the problem of pattern customization.  The slim book contains twelve complete sweater patterns, as well as the necessary pattern parts—or sweater pieces—that can be used to customize a particular pattern.  With 48 sweater pattern pieces to mix and match, Pick the Pieces offers knitters almost unlimited options for their knitting.


Featuring a mix of girls’ and boy’s sweater, this book is a powerful tool for knitters.  You can start with a basic child’s sweater and change the neckline or sleeve length as you see fit.  For knitters who want to make a personalized garment for a special child, Pick the Pieces is an invaluable resource.  The book supplies numerous options for edging, front, sleeve, pockets, applique, and finishing.  Each option is explored in-depth in a chapter devoted to that topic, complete with instructions, descriptions, and pictures.  


There is a lot of information packed into this modest book.  It features clear color pictures so that knitters can get a good idea of what a project looks like, clearly written instructions, and plenty of useful diagrams and illustrations.  Beginning knitters looking to step up their game are sure to get a lot of use out of this friendly and accessible book.
