Knitted Jackets
20 designs from Classic to Contemporary

Cheryl Oberle
Interweave Press 2008
print version

$22.95 (plus shipping)

Review from Library Journal

Oberle presents another diverse array of knitted garments influenced by international folk traditions. While most of the patterns require intermediate knowledge of shaping and construction, ambitious beginner knitters will find Oberle’s directions instructive and easy to follow. Simplicity of design and construction, intelligent instructions, and
end products that are attractive, wearable, and timeless rather than trendy recommend this book for all collections.

Folk Vests

Interweave Press 2002 ( ebook 2012)
25 Vests to knit inspired by cultures around the world with folklore and tales from each country.

Review from Library Journal

Vests have long been a favorite garment of knitters because they are fun to make, comfortable to wear, and easier to knit than garments with sleeves that must be carefully fitted to the wearer..... This book, like .... Folk Shawls, is a compilation of patterns based on the folk wear traditions of Europe (Scotland, Germany, Ireland, Scandinavia, Switzerland, and England), Asia (Nepal, Japan, and China), Africa, and the Americas. The 25 vest patterns each include background information about textile traditions of the country or region, a full-page photo of the garment, a materials list, and complete instructions. Avid knitters will have difficulty deciding which of these elegant vests to knit first: the beautiful Sari Silk Vest from Nepal, the "Many Buttoned Vest" in the German tradition, or the African-inspired Kasai Vest with its wealth of Fair Isle motifs. Warmly recommended for textile collections and public libraries.
