The hanknit seamless raglan-style sweater designs featured in this collection require very little finishing and sewing, and the convenience of the construction of each piece is tailored to fit into a busy, grown-up life. The designs are primarily worked top down and range in complexity from beginner to experienced knitter. Each pattern was cultivated to be just right to flatter adult women and men with some optional features for customization. Readers will enjoy stunning photography throughout and clearly written patterns along with reference sections with instructions on techniques such as seamless zipper installation and creating leather elbow patches.


"Grown is beautifully photographed, easy to read and the patterns are clearly written out with thorough instructions. The book also includes a techniques, glossary and abbreviations section as well as a resource page and some information on gauge and sizing."  —Shannon Cook, coauthor, Within

"The photography is stellar, the models are adorable, and Kate's genius garment engineering and tasteful design touch make this book, well, perfect."  —Veronika Jobe, YOTH yarns
