Explore the joy of knitting top-down sweaters with Ann Budd’s latest addition to the Handy Book series. Answering to a growing interest in knitting sweaters from the top down and knitting seamless sweaters that require little finishing, The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters offers instructions for knitting four basic sweater types: seamless yoke, raglan, set-in sleeve, and saddle-shoulder. Ann offers beautiful patterns for children and adults in multiple sizes and yarn gauges and that serve as springboards for creative expression.
For each of the four sweater types, after the basics of construction are presented, three full sweater patterns are featured – for a total of twelve sweater patterns in the book. Alongside Budd’s own designs, each section features on topnotch guest designer: Jared Flood, Véronik Avery, Pam Allen, and Anne Hanson.
With personal design touches, detailed charts, clear instruction, and quick tips for expanding knitting possibilities, this Handy book will kick your knitting needles into overdrive!
