From the Author I explain various techniques and the reason and explanation for the different needles. I also provide helpful tips, a stitch glossary, and a design section with ideas for designing your own motifs, plus a sample of knitting graph paper for you to use. The patterns I enjoy knitting the most are the top down seamless raglan, which I worked and changed until I had the proportions just right. It is like magic cast on so many, work the neck ribbing, divide for sleeves, front and back, and viola, a sweater. The pattern seemed to work for any size sweater knit the yoke longer and the sweater is larger. Once you have the process down, I encourage you to use the basic sweater and try designing for yourself. Branch out and change colors, designs, add stripes or textures and create your own original sweater.

She has taught Junior High for 19 years, and has written curriculum for her school district. She married in 1980. Her six children, including five boys and one girl, have been the inspiration for many of her designs. When they were young and money was tight, knitting sweaters was not only fun, but economical. Mary explains that her life has been extremely busy and hectic and she firmly believes that knitting is an excellent form of therapy. She is also an advocate for and has participated in humanitarian efforts throughout the world. As a result of donated knitting projects, leapers have comfortable knitted and crocheted bandages, premature babies have caps, and many babies have Afghans and booties. Mary encourages others to become involved, saying that there is nothing more satisfying than to give a handmade gift to someone who really needs it and know that you are giving it from your heart.
