Ever wanted to knit a jumper, in the round, from the top-down?  Well, here’s your chance! 

Taking you from casting-on to binding-off, this series of four classes guides you through all the stages of knitting a top-down jumper, including pattern demystifying, how and where to make adjustments for a better fit, swatching, knitting in the round, dividing the work for the sleeves and body and working each section until completion.
