Ann Budd's creative ingenuity continues to marvel fiber and yarn enthusiasts nationwide, and this latest addition to The Knitter's Handy Book series is no exception. Answering to a growing interest in knitting sweaters from the top down and knitting seamless sweaters that require little finishing, this essential book offers instructions for designing and knitting your own one-of-a-kind top-down sweaters. Instructions are based on five basic sweater types (seamless yoke, raglan, modified drop shoulder, set-in sleeve, and saddle shoulder), in multiple sizes for both adults and children, and in multiple yarn gauges. Each of the five sweater types is conveniently accompanied by three full-length patterns, one from a featured top designer.
The Knitter's Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters is the new indispensable knitting resource on your bookshelf.
