    Kristina McGowan is a New York City–based knitwear designer. Her first book, Modern Top-Down Knitting, was published in 2010 by STC Craft.

    Barbara Walker’s Knitting from the Top, originally published in 1972, is a treasure trove of inspiration about the technique of knitting garments from the top down (for example, knitting a sweater from the neck down to the hem or a hat from the crown down to the brim). In 2010, STC Craft published Kristina McGowan’s successful Modern Top-Down Knitting, a collection of fashion-conscious top-down designs inspired by Walker’s book. Knitters not only loved the technique, which allows for easy, try-on-as-you-go custom fitting, but also applauded McGowan’s modern sense of style. For More Modern Top-Down Knitting, McGowan has dug even deeper into Walker’s iconic work?this time challenging herself to design two garments based on each of Walker’s 12 basic top-down templates. The results come together to form a fresh, stylish wardrobe that includes everything from sweaters and dresses to capes, skirts, hats, and even pants and shorts.

    Praise for More Modern Top-Down Knitting:

    ?More Modern Top-Down Knitting is a beautiful book, featuring exciting and eminently wearable designs for knitters who enjoy self-expression in their craft. The directions are precise but flexible; the garments are highly fashionable; and the pictures are glorious. I am especially delighted to be honored as an ?inspiration’ for Ms. McGowan; but indeed her own creativity is very much on display here. The book is a great gift for any knitter.” ?Barbara G. Walker, author of Knitting from the Top, the Knitting Treasuries, et al.

    ?Lovers of top-down knitting?and those who have yet to learn!?will find a wide range of lovely stylish projects in Kristina McGowan’s second homage collection, inspired by Barbara Walker’s classic book Knitting from the Top. The designs in More Modern Top-Down Knitting are wearable and intriguing, with delightful pattern stitches and simple, yet couture-like touches. A warm and beckoning book, suffused with McGowan’s enthusiasm and her elegant approach to knitwear.” ?Deborah Newton, author of Designing Knitwear and Finishing School: A Master Class for Knitters
