I've loved knitting sweaters from the top down. It's wonderful. I like the increasing way more than decreasing. :) I made a sweater for Will in less than 24 hours! It was so fun. I love the yarn. It's a rather unusual acrylic. The repeats were so long. I've never worked with a yarn with that long of a repeat E.V.E.R.
It's loosely based on the Wonderful Wallaby pattern. ;) It's one of my favorite patterns to knit.
