Knitter's Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters: Basic Designs in Multiple Sizes and Gauges Reviews
Top-Down Sweaters is my third (and clearly my favorite) of Ann Budd's "knitter's handy" books. My first, purchased years ago, showed me clearly how easy it is to design or adjust a sweater design for any person, any type and gauge of yarn. Hooray! But this book explains even more. Here's my take on "Top-Down Sweaters:"
Wow is my first response to Ann Budd's new book of top down sweater patterns. I own Ann Budd's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns, so I was familiar with the amount and type of information in these guides but I was still impressed.
