Top-Down: Reimagining Set-In Sleeve Design, by Elizabeth Doherty, is a collection that takes classic set-in sleeve sweater construction and turns it on its head, with designs that are worked seamlessly from the top down. By beginning at the shoulders—the part of the garment where fit matters most—knitters can try on sweaters as they go, and make adjustments, if needed, in response to the actual fit. In addition, the author has developed a unique construction method for working perfect, seamless, top-down sleeves with a fit that equals conventionally set-in sleeves. The book contains patterns for six sweaters, plus a wealth of information on customizing them to suit one's own shape.
