I have found the joy of knitting top down sweaters. I found this great site that gives a formula for a basic top down Raglan sweater that I adjust accordingly to how I want to make something. I have done a simple Bolero using this pattern and a few others that I did not get a pic of the FO's. But here is a pic of my sons Ugly sweater as I call it also known as an odd ball sweater. I just used a a bunch of bits and pieces that I had in my stash.

I like it. Its different and unique, plus it fits him great. The colors are complimentary to each other.

I think it is adorable! I especially like the black across the shoulders; I think that really sets the sweater off nicely. :)

It looks great, and he looks very proud of it! Great colors for a boy. I love top-down raglan sweaters too. This one reminds me of the Wonderful Wallaby.

Oh yeah he loves it he wore it all night last night. I call it ugly because it has no rhyme or reason to the color scheme and it full of various shades of navy and reds. I had made him an odd ball blanket before and it was ugly as it had so many colors but he loved it and it was the inspiration for his sweater.
