Top down cardigan

There are knitters in our club who remember top down cardigans and jumpers being a thing and how the club encouraged them to try it with their spun wool. Everything which is old is new again so top down cardigans and jumpers are back in vogue! It requires a different approach and a different way of thinking about how you are going to knit the garment. Any kind of rethinking is good brain exercise.

Karin has started a lovely top down cardigan in her own lovely handspun wool which she had dyed a turquoise colour. I t just looks so nice and will be such a cheerful colour to wear on a gloomy winter’s day.

Lion Brand yarns has a good free pattern if you want to break out the round needles and give a top down cardigan a try.
