Knitters will be spoiled for choice with Melissa Leapman’s 6000+ Pullover Possibilities.

From saddle shoulder long sleeves to raglan bell sleeves, scoop necks to Henley plackets, or straight silhouettes to empire waistlines, knitters will be delighted to have so many design possibilities available in one book. Edge treatments, pocket options, and finishing instructions are also included for the most personalizable approach to sweater making ever published.
