A New York City fashion designer has divided her book of 20 city-inspired projects into three sections: Heart of the City, Urban Bohemia and City Gardens and teaches such techniques as knit-in pockets, tabs, button details, slip-stitch edgings and small slits and pleats, in a book that has everything from a chunky cabled sweater to a gossamer cardigan.

Amazon Description:

Knit for uptown or downtown with a trend-setting New York City designer. With these 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. They feature a variety of construction and finishing techniques, including knit-in pockets, tabs, button details, slip-stitch edgings, and small slits and pleats.

Projects are divided along three themes: Heart of the City – Designed for those who enjoy sleek midtown in mind. Urban Bohemia – The downtown bohemian goddess will love these looks. City Gardens – Made to inspire a sense of tranquility. These three looks balance out a complete picture of the modern woman. What more could a city knitter need?
