Corrina Ferguson is a knitwear designer and former editor for Creative Knitting Magazine. She is known as PicnicKnits on Ravelry, Instagram, Twitter, and has her own website, picnicknits.com. She has been designing for over 10 years and has over 200 patterns to her credit, including those in her first book, Warm Days, Cool Knits. With "Top-Down Knit Sweaters: 16 Versatile Styles Featuring Texture, Lace, Cables, and Colorwork" she has drawn upon her years of experience and expertise to create an instruction manual of DIY knitted sweaters specifically designed for anything from office to errands to weekend events. They are polished yet comfortable, closet staples with interesting details that will make you feel well-dressed every time you put one on. From textured pullover to cabled raglan to wrap-front cardigan, the 16 designs in "Top-Down Knit Sweaters" will take you anywhere you want to go. Knitting sweaters from the top down offers many advantages knitters appreciate, not the least of which is that it minimizes the amount of seaming you have to do to finish your sweater. It also allows more easy options for customization in the yoke, raglan placement, overall length, and armhole length. Since you can try your sweater on as you go, you can make sure that you are working to the exact fit you desire. Critique: Replete with a wealth of helpful tips for knitting top down, with thoroughly 'use friendly' patterns for sizes from XS to XXL, plus a guide to finding the best personal fit, "Top-Down Knit Sweaters: 16 Versatile Styles Featuring Texture, Lace, Cables, and Colorwork" showcases patterns for both hand knitted pullovers and cardigan sweaters. While unreservedly recommended for personal, professional, and community library Needlecraft instructional reference collections, it should be noted that "Top-Down Knit Sweaters" is also available in a digital book format (Kindle, $15.48).--Midwest Book Review
