Here are a few of my favorite designs from the book:

In Top-Down Crochet Sweaters, Dora discusses why crocheting from the top down is a great technique. She also goes into great detail about the basics of top-down construction and yarn choices. Dora discusses blocking your garments and making sure that they fit properly. Top-Down Crochet Sweaters is arranged in garment pairs, with the easier patterns first and the more advanced patterns at the end of the book. Each of the patterns has wonderfully written instructions, with charts and diagrams to help you visualize portions of the pattern. At the end of the book, you will find some great resources such as an index, abbreviation list, and metric conversion chart.

  2. These are so pretty! I just love crochet sweaters. I am building up my skill level so that I can start making these myself.
