Doreen L. Marquart became a Master Knitter through the Knitting Guild of America in 1998. She has owned and operated her retail business, Needles 'n Pins Yarn Shoppe, since 1993.
Someone asked me about top-down knitting and I pulled out Top Down Sweaters: Knit to Fit from Top to Bottom. The patterns in this book are basic and practical. A couple have the wow factor for me. When and if I finally sit down to knit, it has to be a challenge--I hate knitting miles of plain "fabric." I especially like puzzle patterns, and there are at least a couple of them in this book. I'd like to try them via crochet too.
The book includes a capelet, variations on pullovers with textured designs appearing toward the waist, vests, sweaters, and my favorite, a modular jacket in garter stitch. Knitting techniques and assembly instructions start the book. The more I look at it, the more I'm tempted to try something there. --Artyouwear Blog
