The Unpattern for Top-Down Cardigans lets you design your own raglan-sleeved sweater from the top down, with your choice of neckline shape (V-neck or rounded neck).

You choose a garment that fits you well as a template, take some measurements according to the schematic in the Unpattern, and measure the gauge of your chosen yarn (any yarn, any gauge!). The Unpattern helps you do the math and walks you through the shaping to create your own custom top-down sweater!

Students in my workshops have written me and posted FOs here on Ravelry saying that these top-downs fit them better than any other sweater they’ve done before - how wonderful!

The downloable .pdf version available from Patternfish includes my ‘Design Details’ notesheets on ‘Girlie Shaping’ and my signature ‘Purl Darts.’ I am so thrilled to finally be able to offer this Unpattern online via download for all those in Europe and beyond who have wanted to get their hands on this Unpattern!
