A top-down sweater requires no picking up stitches or seaming. You don't have to use watermelon colors, but it look super cute if you do. Skills include increasing, decreasing, button holes. The pattern comes in one size, but you can use larger yarn and needles to match your yarn if you'd like a bigger size.
For the confident beginner that wants to try a basic sweater design. Must be able to knit, purl, cast on, bind off.
