    The Tin Can Book is really about all a knitter needs to become a fabulous color work expert and designer. Made my second color work sweater from this book followed by numerous cowl and hats for Christmas gifts. Being able to tweak the patterns to your own likes and body fit is very easy. I have recommended this book to many, especially for people who want a book that includes children, woman and men sizes.

    Hi…. I love your Strange Brew book and have made 4 hats and one sweater! Currently, I am making the child sized (2-4) Almanac Sweater. My question is how to sl1 when you are adding a color. I am having difficulty with row 14. sl1 is a new color! I cannot find any tutorials about this. Any suggestions? I have ripped this row out 2 times. Thanks so much… Mary Ann

      Hi Mary Ann – In chart A round 14 the slip one is in the same colour as the first stitch in round 13. I think that will clear up the problem.
