I just adore top down design. You know the top down working process is more attention-grabbing and entertaining from usual one when you make separate pieces from bottom to top and then join them. You've got a very beneficial advantage because you can try your unfinished garment on any time.  To get a perfect fit, try the pullover on as you go, and add or subtract any length from the body or the sleeves before crocheting the edging.

Among other things this top down sweater is a perfect option to use your leftover yarn. I made it from my left over yarns which I had from my previous projects. I used five colors.  You can use the same colors, vary different colors, or use more shades for a more colorful look.

The pattern is written in American crochet terms and includes detailed instructions with a lot of photos in progress. Don’t worry if you don't have enough crochet experience, the pattern gives you an opportunity to build up your crochet skills. 

Hope you enjoy this pattern and give it a try.

I see inspiration everywhere and I love to inspire others.

I try to make patterns that are clear and comprehensive with a lot of pictures for the tricky parts. I'd like to give you possibility to improve your skills as you go through my patterns and to share my crochet experience.
