Scrumptious texture, winding cables, and mesmerizing colorwork will take your knitwear wardrobe to the next level of fashion. All of these pieces are designed to go from office to errands to weekends. They are polished yet comfortable, closet staples with interesting details that will make you feel well-dressed every time you put one on. From textured pullover to cabled raglan to wrap-front cardigan, the 16 designs in this book will take you anywhere you want to go. Knitting sweaters from the top down offers many advantages knitters appreciate, not the least of which is that it minimizes the amount of seaming you have to do to finish your sweater. It also allows more easy options for customization in the yoke, raglan placement, overall length, and armhole length. Since you can try your sweater on as you go, you can make sure that you are working to the exact fit you desire.
