Knit for uptown or downtown with a trend-setting NYC designer. In this collection of 20 polished, sophisticated projects, knitwear designer Melissa Wehrle has created a collection that perfectly reflects the rhythm, flavor, and drama of city life. From a chunky cabled sweater and hat to a beautiful tunic and gossamer cardigan, Melissa's designs are beautifully shaped, expertly finished, and ready to be shown off on the street. Even her basic projects have a refined simplicity and elegance that feature a variety of construction and finishing techniques: knit-in pockets, tabs, button details, slip-stitch edgings, along with small slits and pleats. These details help transform any garment into something spectacular. Projects are divided along three themes: Heart of the City (sleek midtown), Urban Bohemia (downtown bohemian), and City Gardens (a sense of tranquility). These three looks balance out a complete picture of the modern woman. Let Melissa Wehrle be your guide to ready-to-wear knits. What more can a city knitter need?show more
