This kit includes yarn, the pattern with instructions for all sizes, a list of all abbreviations, glossary of terms, and a crisp schematic with dimensions for proper blocking. Plus, a link is provided to Knitting Help on my web site. The kit also includes my proprietary StitchSaver™ Row Checker. All in a backpack project bag.
StitchSaver™ Row Checker
It is hard to make a mistake with my unique Row Checker. It helps you keep track of stitch count row-by-row for each section of the pattern, plus all increase and decrease shaping. With check off boxes for each row you can put this project aside for a week, a month or a year and return to the exact spot where you stopped.
For your convenience, we’ve collected definitions for abbreviations, links to tutorial videos that may make knitting your project easier and more fun, as well as guides to techniques and tailoring. Visit the Knitting Help page on our website.
Whether you like to dress up or down, knit this casually elegant sweater from a pattern designed for flexibility. The pleats on each side of the waist can be open for a loose, at-ease appearance or buttoned for a more tailored fit. So, look equally sophisticated pairing it with jeans or your favorite designer slacks.
This top-down design starts by shaping the neck with short rows, and then continues in stockinette with almost invisible raglan increases. Since the pattern has no seams to sew, you can easily check the fit—shoulders, chest, sleeves, length—as you knit. Haven’t knitted a top-down sweater before? Don’t worry. Here’s a free, printable PDF of top-down knitting instructions.
