This is a wonderful book of patterns that help you make the most flattering sweaters possible. A must-read for any knitter.

“There’s nothing worse than spending countless hours on a handmade garment, only to find that the fit is horrible and unflattering. Knitwear designer Herzog, known for her online and in-person workshops on creating well-fitting knitted garments, compiles years of experience into this confidence-building book. After some self-analysis, knitters will easily be able to determine their own body type-top-heavy, bottom-heavy, or proportional-as well as sweater designs that complement each shape. Herzog not only shows each design on a model, she explains why the design works for that body type, allowing women of all shapes and sizes to find garments with similar elements. The directions for the sweaters are clear, and Herzog presents suitable modifications for each garment.”
