I've seen a lot of patterns lately for sweaters - knit down. I'm assuming that means knitting from the neck down, instead of the bottom up. What's the advantage to that? Is is easier?
I usually knit socks 'down' - from the top down, but recently tried one from the toe up. I did fine on the toe and the foot but completely got lost on turning the heel. It was a lovely sock, cabled ... snif...but after frogging the heel 4 times, I had to admit I couldn't do it. it was such a pretty sock...
anyway, I would hate to get into the same kind of trouble with a sweater.. more yarn and time invested.
Just curious as to the feelings about the up or down thang.
