Within the lavishly photographed pages of knit, Swirl!, designer Sandra McIver presents 18 designs that flatter all figures, each based on the innovative one piece, one seam circular construction she calls a “Swirl”. Using simple knitting techniques, she creates elegant sweater jackets in four dramatic silhouettes and three flexible sizes.
As clever a book as it is gorgeous, knit, Swirl! presents a masterful use of simple knitting techniques to create a garment that – as I can personally attest – feels magnificent, showcases yarn to its fullest, and flatters all figures. Sandra’s Swirl is, indeed, the new Miracle Sweater. Clara Parkes—Knitter s Review
This book may be one of the most exciting and brilliant knitting concepts I have ever seen. Sandra McIver has presented the knitting world with a unique twist on the circle sweater and elevated the idea to whole new heights. Knitty.com
An instant classic and a true treasure in our genre. Jared Flood—Brooklyn Tweed
After pawing through this gorgeous collection of “Swirls”—McIver’s term for her circular-shawl-cum-jackets—it’s hard to imagine that you wouldn’t get mobbed at a wool festival should you decide to knit one. Not only does it drape and move as you swan about, it also allows you to incorporate fancy stitchwork, weave in ribbons, show off flashy hand-paints and generally bend it to your will. Vogue Knitting
I believe this sweater is destined to become one of the most oft-knit, beloved and reliable knitting designs in history. Cat Bordhi—author of New Pathways for Sock Knitters and Personal Footprints for Insouciant Sock Knitters
