When Top-Down is Just Fine

I am not a big fan of most top-down processes and designs. Top-down (trickle down) economics? Nah. Top-down management? Nope - not really. I'm generally more inclusive.


Of course there are excep-tions to most rules - and top-down sweater construction is definitely the exception in this instance. I've just completed my first top-down constructed cardigan, this Doris Chan design, and I love how it turned out. I love the yarn (Plymouth Grass) and the fit (mine is more top-of-the pocket length) is great ... because of all that top-down stuff. I can't wait to wear it this spring and summer.

Being particular can occasionally be well-placed. Occasionally.

Now make certain you check in with Andrea's blog to see what everyone else has under construction this Fee-Fi(ber)-F.O. Friday.

  4. I'm not generally a big fan of top down garments either, they tend to be tight on the neckline. Your cardigan is so pretty, bet the lace makes it less weighty and more comfortable too.
