Barbara Walker's Knitting from the Top, originally, published in 1982, is a treasure trove of inspiration about the technique of knitting garments from the top down (for example, knitting a pullover from the neck down to the hem or a hat from the crown down to the brim). In 2010, STC Craft published Kristina McGowan's successful Modern Top-Down Knitting, a collection of fashion-conscious top-down designs inspired by Walker's book. Not only did knitters love the technique, which allows for easy, try-on-as-you-go custom-fitting, but they also applauded McGowan's modern sense of style. For More Modern Top-Down Knitting, McGowan has dug even deeper into Walker's iconic work--this time challenging herself to design two garments each based on all 12 of Walker's basic top-town templates. The results come together to form a fresh, stylish wardrobe, everything from jumpers and dresses to capes, skirts, hats and even trousers and more
