Five Hour Baby Sweater
I wanted to learn top-down sweater construction, and what better way than with this? It's the Five Hour Baby Sweater, made with one skein of some Lana Gatto yarn I had. It's fast, it's cute, it's functional....I just ordered Barbara Walker's book on Knitting From the Top because of it, too. A google search will give you a bunch of links to this pattern and all its variations, but here's one:
Lorraine Major's Verion of the 5 HBS
I'll add this - the sweater was just okay until I added the buttons. The buttons made it! It's really the details that finish things off.
