Sweaters from the Top Down Circular Yoke Style



Because they can be tried on for fit along the way and because they require no seaming, many knitters prefer to knit sweaters from the top-down. Following the techniques outlined in Ann Budd’s book, The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters, learn the basics for knitting a sweater from the top down by knitting a miniature crewneck pullover (it may fit an infant) in worsted-weight yarn. You’ll learn basic sweater design and construction principles for working from the top down, how to follow patterns in all The Knitter’s Handy Book series by Ann Budd, as well as tips and tricks along the way.

ADVANCED-BEGINNER KNITTING SKILLS REQUIRED; MUST BE COMFORTABLE WORKING IN THE ROUND.

Materials: 

Two skeins of worsted-weight wool or wool blend yarn (acrylic is not recommended as it will not block), such as Cascade 220(you may only need one skein but you don’t want to run out); The Knitter’s Handy Guide to Top-Down Sweaters (or make arrangements to share with a friend); size U.S. 7 or 8 needles in 24” circular and set of 4 or 5 double-pointed (two circulars or the “magic loop” method can be substituted); tape measure; tapestry needle; size F, G, or H (3.75 to 4.75 mm) crochet hook; smooth cotton waste yarn for provisional cast-on; stitch holders; round stitch markers and removable stitch markers.
