I’ve noticed people tend to knit what they know, and when it comes to sweaters, they usually only know top-down or bottom-up sweaters.
I’m not an exception to that. I definitely prefer bottom-up sweaters, and that’s probably because my first sweater was bottom-up.
I can’t fault anyone for having a preference, but I’ve run into a surprising about of people who tell me they will never knit bottom-up sweaters because they want to try on their work as they go.
This baffles me because you can definitely see if your sweater is going to fit you before you finish… so I made a video that I hope will help! Check it out below, and let me know if it was helpful or if you still have questions.
