I am interested in making more shapely sweaters for myself. I just found out about this new book posted on The Blue Blog and it looks like a good one. I love the green sweater on the cover (and pictured below). The subtitle of the book is 30 Designs to Flatter and Fit. The Blue Blog states that the chapter about knitting to fit is classic Sally Melville: full of clear, concise details and a multitude of useful illustrations. And there are explanations for sweater lengths and shapes, how to measure yourself (not just a basic bust measurements, but more specific measurements like shoulder width and waist length), and how to adjust any pattern to fit you better.
