Knit From the Top Down 16 Sweater Knitting Patterns

Don't you hate it when you finish a sweater only to find that it doesn't quite fit your body?  Let me introduce you to a type of knitting pattern that will change your life: top down patterns.  Just as it sounds, these types of projects are made from the top down, meaning you'll be able to try it on as you're making it. 

Along with the ability to try it on as you go, comes the chance to make the necessary, last-minute alterations to the pattern once you find it doesn't fit.  This means if you stick to knitting top down patterns, your sweater knitting patterns will always fit and flatter your body in the best away possible.  Sounds like a good deal, doesn't it?

Short-Sleeved Sweater Knitting Patterns

Whether or not you're in need of a pattern to don on a cool, breezy day, you'll love this group of short-sleeved designs.  My personal favorite is the Summer Night Cowl Sweater.  It's such a versatile sweater that can be worn anywhere— from the grocery store to an afternoon outing with family and friends. I especially love these sweaters in the summertime, when it's too hot outside for anything but a tank top, but the second you walk into a building it's freezing cold! These sweater knitting patterns are absolute life savers.
