Fully fashioned shaping, a technique used in the fashion industry, deliberately shows off increase and decrease stitches, creating exquisite garments that look like they cost a fortune. Melissa shows you how to incorporate these elements into your knitting with step-by-step techniques and four Designer Workshops that will help you master these shaping methods, from form-fitting bust darts to cleverly positioned vertical lines to the magic of faux-shaping, which hides any figure flaws and draws attention exactly where you want it. Nineteen original patterns provide the perfect chance to showcase these techniques. Each pattern comes with a guide to help you determine if the sweater best suits your body type, whether your figure is pear-shaped, top heavy, round, rectangular, or hourglass. With Melissa's guidance, you'll fine-tune your knitting, create slimming garments, and learn how to customize any project with designer details.
