Knitting from the top down is one of our favorite techniques.
Easy to knit, easy to fit, and easy finishing!
Many of our Grand View patterns are designed using this technique and we also watch for good patterns and books using this method. Some of the best we have found are the top down designs from Cabin Fever. Their books cover patterns for Toddlers, age 1 - 6; Cardigans for adults; Cardigans for preemies - 18 months; Sweaters and Accessories for Teens age 8 - 18; plus a book on Hats, another on Socks, an additional Baby Cardigan book Newborn - 18 months, and the newest of their books is the adult Cardigan in plus sizes.
