Yes, I have the book and have made a few projects out of it. Everything turned out great, so keep on going, pretty . Knitting socks and repairing them very smartly become yet another of her skills. Everything turned out great, so keep on going, pretty soon it will be finished and you will be amazed! No blocking or sewing up pieces that have stretched. She taught me to darn additionally (yet i've got in no way like knitting) and my darning wasn't undesirable in any respect yet i does not prefer to do it now. Grandad and pa has hand-crafted socks from her and liked them.

I believe this is the original explanation of the knitting from the top concept. The styles and color stories are out of date, but the instruction within makes it possible to knit any shape any size. When I started knitting from the top, ill fitting sweaters became a thing of my past. I needed a ruler for measuring and a calculator to create my size, my style. Don't worry Barbara explains all and makes it easy. Plus after using the instruction a few times, I started just casting on without making a swatch. In a few rows I would take a gauge measurement and adjust as needed. Yes Barb explains this too. So wish this book was in PDF format.

This book is the thinking knitters guide to top down knitting in many styles. There is not a step by step pattern in the whole thing. Only a couple of photos the rest are schematic drawings. It is for those who want to completely customize their piece based on measurements, gauge, and desired style. The author has a great logical and creative approach to solving knitting problems and shares it with you in a conversational style in great detail. She helps guide the process of making your own pattern from the top so to speak. If you are looking to dig in to some serious in depth technical know how about top down knitting then this is for you.

Don't be thrown by the 70's cover. The information contained within is Wonderful. If you are looking for new line by line patterns, don't buy this. If you are looking for an actual How-To, it's perfect! Knitting from the top down intrigued me. Reading the explanation of "Top Down", knitting that way made sense. Your own gauge (you have to do a swatch anyway) is the Key! Grab a pencil and paper because you are going to need them. I use a calculator, too. She tells you how to go from there. Decisions about stitch patterns, etc. and options for ribbing and neck lines and such are ALL yours.

This is the best knitting book I own or have ever seen.
Still, it is not for everyone.
It is not for knitters who like to knit row-by-row patterns. It does not have projects in it with type and amount of yarn and needle sizes.
It is not for knitters who like to knit panels and then sew them together.
It is not for knitters who do not like to shape garments to the body as they knit.

This book has no photos of finished projects because there is no need for those. The book is a manual. It tells you how to knit most styles of sweaters from the top down, to your own measurements, and in your own choice of yarn, color, and pattern stitch. Design your own, or pick a style from an illustrated knitting magazine or book. Then follow the very clear and cogent directions in this book to produce the design in your chosen size, knitting from the top down. You can adapt these directions easily to almost any pattern you buy, eliminating seams that the original might have.

If you are a beginner knitter, with little experience in clothing construction, you might find the instructions hard to comprehend, and may have to work at understanding something about how clothing fits the human body before it all makes sense.

The hat instructions, though, are simple even for a beginner. You can also knit leggings with the directions in the book. These would be simple projects.

Knitting a sweater from the top down is a liberating experience. It is easier to shape than kitting from the bottom up. As the book points out, you can try it on as it progresses. You can make it shorter if you find you are running out of yarn. You can knit & attach the sleeves early on in the knitting. And you avoid the tedious sewing of the seams when you are finished.

If you are a magic loop knitter, you can cast on using that method for some of the sweater styles.

I found the book to be well-written and easy to read and the instructions completely comprehensible. If you are used to following patterns, you might not, judging from the negative reviews here.

It arrived on time and in good condition. It exceeded my expectations. I read all the readers' comments and really didn't get a sense of the book since everyone either was ready to donate a kidney over it since they liked it so much, or they really didn't understand it because it leaves a lot of space for us to extend ourselves and use our heads, or they didn't like the 'chatty' style... Either way, I loved it but I'm saving all my organs for a rainy day...
The writing style was neither 'chatty' or long winded, I thought the author presented her ideas and techniques and expects me to so something constructive with it. If I have to knit something and then rip it out and start over again, I can't blame the author since that's the type of thing that I do with stitch by stitch patterns--I do it to get it right and I think your should too. Buy the book and read it with "Knitting without Tears" and if you can get a copy of "Knitting in the Old Way" you'll be golden.
Lots of luck and keep knitting!

You just have to Love Barbara G. Walker- She is the Best, takes knitting to a whole new level.

Her style of knitting makes so much sense and garments made in the round top to bottom are like garments made on the bias, cut against the grain that hug and drape the body perfectly without seams to interfere with the flow of the garment..

Her stitch books- well you just have to search on amazon: books by Barbara G. Walker...she has so many original stitches - lace, cable, mosaic - yes- mosaic, something she developed- her innovations are endless!

I waited a long time to buy this book, and I could just kick myself because it is wonderful. Ms. Walker clearly describes how to knit a garment, whether a hat, vest, skirt, pants or sweater, from the top down and the advantages of doing so. Different weight yarns are adaptable. She also explains raglan sleeve shaping, set in sleeve shaping, dropped shoulder and saddle shoulder shaping. This is by far the best "top down" instructional book available, far superior to the more recent publications by other designers.
