Top Down Pullover
I love top down sweaters!! No seaming! Made with Tatamy tweed worsted. Pattern is Knitting Pure and Simple in smallest size. More stash used, yea. Also a pair of basic mittens. Need to work on the pointy thumb tip...any ideas how to make it not so pointy?

I just bought some Tatamy Tweed for a sweater in the oatmeal color. That's a beautiful sweater and mitts!

How far did you decrease down to? If you stop one decrease row sooner and then finish it will probably help. I put the yarn down through the center and weave it in inside that also seems to help on hats as well.

WONDERFUL! No seams are the best in my book,
AND for knitting through your stash.

On mitten thumbs, I do the last round with no decreases.

Nice sweater - I made a similar one in Encore Worsted, only not top down. I love the Tatamy Tweed Yarn, although I've only used the dk so far.
