Knitting Sweaters from the Top Down by Cathy Carron
Note: This book has been marked down to half price because it bears some minor water damage. We have checked it and all the patterns are still usable.
Create your own sweater designs from a basic top down knitting pattern, adding custom shaping and details as you go!
Sweaters are the ultimate showcase for knitters—but most patterns require tricky and complicated piecing. These don’t…and they look fantastic, too! The seamless, top-down knitting method eliminates challenging construction, allowing knitters to focus on the individual details that make each sweater special.
Not only does this guide thoroughly explain how the technique works, but it also teaches beginners how to design their own generic patterns for pullovers and cardigans in different yarn gauges. All the sweaters are organized by yarn weight, and the projects include an elegant rolled-collar pullover, dramatic capelet, and Asian-inspired top.
