About designer Stefanie Japel:
I learned to knit from my grandma when I was 8 years old. I've grown up wearing her sweaters and borrowing the ones she made for other people. Most of these sweaters are raglans, knit in the round from the top. I continue this sweatermaking tradition.

My work has appeared in a number of books and publications including Big Girl Knits, Stitch N Bitch Nation, KnitGrrl, Knit Wit, Not Another Teen Knitting Book, Interweave Knits, Knitscene, Knit.1, and Vogue Knitting Magazine.

I have designed patterns for Stitch Diva Studios, the yarn companies Southwest Trading Company, JCA Reynolds, Artful Yarns, and Tilli Tomas. I'm currently working on my second and third books at F&W Publishing, to be released in Fall 2008.margin requirement calculator

My first book

The book includes full pattern details (in all sizes) for the "Better Sweater" as featured on the D.I.Y Network and HGTV program Knitty Gritty. 

If you've found this site through Knitty Gritty or through Knitty.com and have questions about either the "Better Sweater" or the "Cropped Cardigan with Leaf Ties" please take a few moments to browse the posts at the Fitted Knits Knitalong.

The Better Sweater is called the "Carie Cropped Cardigan" in my book, and you'll find lots of tips and tricks regarding both of these patterns over at the Knitalong site. If you ask your questions at the Knitalong, it'll make it a lot easier for me to answer everyone.

Thank you for your interest in these patterns, and for your cooperation,
