The Urban Knitter: A New Generation of Contemporary Design and Creative Inspiration
by Lily M. Chin

The Urban Knitter is a collection of 20 unique patterns, each with a clever introduction and clear instructions. The author, Lily M. Chin, is a well known knitter who has even designed swimwear for Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issues. While there are no swimsuits in this book, we are fond of the knitted bras and the espadrilles.

Another plus to this book is the detail level of the patterns. The drawings are specific and include dimensions for every possible measurement. A great help when trying to size a garment just for you.
