Mary Davis presents 26 designs for classic, no-nonsense garments in a wide range of sizes, to suit every member of the family. Waistcoats, jumpers, cardigans, evening tops, using chunky yarns in natural fibres – not only wool, but cotton, mohair, silk and angora. The patterns are written in a simple style which even the complete beginner can follow with confidence, and for those new to machine knitting, there is a basic beginner's course. There are clear illustrations, and colour photographs of all the designs. The author covers a variety of machines and techniques, including both chunky and standard-gauge machines, and discusses the suitability of the various yarns for each pattern.
