In Custom Knits 2 , Wendy Bernard picks up where she left off in the bestselling Custom Knits (published by STC Craft), empowering knitters to delve even further into customization. Each chapter begins with a tutorial on the featured topic--such as converting patterns to fit men, women, or children, or tricks and techniques for substituting yarn, gauge, and stitch patterns--and is followed by a selection of Bernard's fashionable designs on which to try them. The patterns can be knit as-written or customized; specific prompts for customization are included throughout. Custom Knits 2 concludes with formulas for making garments without a pattern, using only body measurements as a guide--a graduation of sorts for adventurous knitters.

Custom Knits 2:
"If you thought you learned a lot with Wendy Bernard's first book, Custom Knits , hold on to your calculators, knitters! If Custom Knits showed you how do some top-down gymnastics, Custom Knits 2 invites you to join Cirque du Soleil with your brain."
