In this previous post about my crochet cardigan, I mentioned that I was going to try "top-down" knitting---and here it is! My first KNITTED garment!!
I followed the instruction in the book: "Modern Top-down Knitting" by Kristina McGowan.
It's her "Cafe Tunic" design. Since I wanted to wear this mainly as a dress, I picked x-small size(with some negative ease) and added 1'' to the hem.
A thin elastic code is enclosed in a row of crochet in each armhole.
I got yarns on sale at a local Joann , and they were under $25 in total! It's quite a bargain for 100% wool, no??
I've already ordered some more yarn to knit another project from the same book...I'm quite hooked ;)
