Top down sweaters are knit all in one piece. You know what that means??? No sewing and minimal finishing!! It's perfect for your first sweater!! It also allows you creative freedom to add stripes or special stitches!
It's time to dive into making your first sweater! Annette will guide you through determining the right size based on your measurements, knitting a gauge swatch (yes, it's vital for a sweater that will actually fit you!), understanding basic garment construction, knitting the pieces, and finally, finishing!
