Knitting Without Tears: Basic Techniques and Easy-to-Follow Directions for Garments to Fit All Sizes - Elizabeth Zimmermann

Knitting Without Tears: Basic Techniques and Easy-to-Follow Directions for Garments to Fit All Sizes by Elizabeth Zimmermann
Just finishing up a sweater I custom made with all kinds of cabling patterns and thought I'd read about how Elizabeth uses her template.
Lots of tips along the way that trouble many of us with different problems.  This is an audio book but it is describing the diagrams of what is being discussed.
Gauge and the right percentage chart will guarantee a perfect fit. Patterns of items to be made are discussed row by row where the hard parts are. Lots of different techniques.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
