Kristina McGowan is a New York City–based knitwear designer.

For decades, knitters have been constructing garments using the wonderfully efficient top-down technique made famous by Barbara G. Walker in her renowned tome Knitting from the Top. But never have the results looked as glamorous and city-chic as they do in Modern Top-Down Knitting. In this sophisticated wom­enswear collection, designer Kristina McGowan presents streamlined, feminine dresses, tunics, and skirts; elegant cardigans and pullovers; and stylish go-to accessories such as hats and mitts. Also included are step-by-step photo tutorials that make top-down techniques easy to understand and sizing and style adjustments a cinch to achieve. Detailed instructions are also included for finishing garments with couture-quality trims and linings, so they look just as elegant on the inside as they do on the outside.

"Kristina McGowan presents a charming collection of original designs in knitwear, to inspire knitters of all levels of skill. Her work incorporates the two essential qualities of good knitting direction: (1) her ideas are fresh, fashionable, and interesting; and (2) her instructions are clear and easily followed. Hers is an excellent book."
Barbara G. Walker

  • inovative and fresh

    This is a beautifully illustrated and inovative book. I haven't made anything yet but, this book makes me want to start as soon as possible. It is written very straightforward and the patterns are fairly easy to understand. As the title states the patterns are very modern and although the top-down concept isn't new to me, they have managed to give it a really new and fresh spin. The only reason I'm not giving it five stars is because I haven't made anything yet.
