Åsa Tricosa Ziggurats: 16 elegantly seamless knits by Åsa Söderman introduces you to the art of knitting beautiful top-down sweaters, using her innovative Ziggurat technique. Skillfully designed to minimize cutting and joining of skeins, and to maximize flowing and seamless knitting, the Ziggurat method is clever, addictive, and produces well-fitting, well-finished sweaters.

The book is written for both experienced and novice knitters, and for those new to sweater knitting. The comprehensive and elegant patterns will guide you, step-by-step, through the basics of Ziggurating. You can choose to follow the patterns as written, to master the techniques and gain confidence. Or you can use Åsa's extensive detailed tutorials, and customize the patterns to suit yourself - adapt the neckline, add pockets, tucks, or lined hems and cuffs to create truly unique knits.

This is Åsa's invitation to discover the beauty of some of her favorite yarns, with designs knitted in a range of weights from heavy laceweight to aran from both commercial and indie dyers.

Åsa Söderman, known to the knitting world as Åsa Tricosa, is a pattern designer who delights in solving tricky knitting problems. Her designs feature her own innovative techniques and a pure pared-back style, centered around warm functionality, clean lines, flawless craftsmanship and an understated Scandinavian elegance. She finds her inspiration in the creative generosity and flair of the knitting community, and in turn enthuses others to "knit with abandon".

(Åsa rhymes with Tricosa - in most languages, Söderman rhymes with not much at all.)
