Sewing with Knitted Fabrics A Book Review Collaboration (sponsored post)


I cannot tell you how excited I was to be invited to be part of the launch of Wendy Ward’s last book A Beginner’s Guide to Sewing with Knitted Fabric in collaboration with Minerva Crafts.

As soon as I received the book I could not put it down. Love the feel of the paper the book is printed on. The book is structured into two main parts one that gives information about how to use the book, types of knitted fabric, tools and techniques to be used when working with knits and a part that includes the projects and patterns to details of how to make each garment. There are a total of 6 patterns that come in 10 sizes (UK 8 to UK 26), that can be modified and/or combined to make 20 garments.

The pattern pieces are overlapped so they need to be traced. However, they are colour coded and each colour is significantly different than the other ones making tracing easier. To ease identifying the pieces for your chosen pattern there is also a coloured box on each pattern piece to help you find them faster.

It took me forever to decide what project to make first. I wanted to make them all.

For more information about what I think about this lovely book and what I chose to make please follow the link below:
