IMPROV is a basic pattern — and full tutorial — for a seamless top-down sweater, complete with notes on adding seams if you like!

Knitting a basic sweater from the neck down is one of the easiest ways to gain an understanding of how sweater shaping works, which builds your confidence as a knitter and enables you to begin modifying published patterns to your liking or to knit without a pattern. And it’s so simple — if you can knit a thumb gusset, you can knit a top-down sweater.

For this pattern, you may use any yarn and needles you like; you may choose between a pullover and cardigan, as well as the specific details thereof; and you’ll establish your own stitch and row gauge.

Everything you need to know is in the pattern and tutorial.

And on AUGUST 15th, we’re kicking off the Fringe and Friends Knitalong 2016, which is a Top-Down Knitalong, with fun, friends and prizes. For complete details:
