More Modern Top-Down Knitting

$16.50 40% off

Barbara Walker's Knitting from the Top, originally published in 1972, is a treasure trove of inspiration about the technique of knitting garments from the top down (for example, knitting a sweater from the neck down to the hem or a hat from the crown down to the brim). In 2010, Kristina McGowan's successful Modern Top-Down Knitting was published, a collection of fashion-conscious top-down designs inspired by Walker’s book. Knitters not only loved the technique, which allows for easy, try-on-as-you-go custom fitting, but also applauded McGowan's modern sense of style.

For More Modern Top-Down Knitting, McGowan has dug even deeper into Walker's iconic work - this time challenging her to design two garments based on each of Walker's 12 basic top-down templates. The results come together to form a fresh, stylish wardrobe that includes everything from sweaters and dresses to capes, skirts, hats, and even pants and shorts.

"A warm and beckoning book, suffused with McGowan's enthusiasm and her elegant approach to knitwear."

- Deborah Newton, author of Designing Knitwear and Finishing School: A Master Class for Knitters
