Top down, simultaneous set-in sleeve method

One method I love for top down sweaters was devised by Barbara Walker. A number of designers use the method, often giving it a new name, but I do prefer to give credit where it’s due. For the purposes of this tutorial I am using an Aran weight yarn and following directions for a pattern knitted with laceweight or 4ply/fingering weight yarn, so the pieces look chunkier, taller and wider than they should.

Thank you for visiting our website.

Woolly Madly Deeply is an online yarn shop Cumbria based retailer. I do have a studio in Ulverston, Cumbria where I store all the yarns and pack all your orders and carry out my design work. I work here most week days.

I am lucky to be able to split my working day between home and here.  I don’t work typical shop hours and our premises is not open to the public.  I’m sorry about that, but we made a choice to only be an online service and the cost of a shop etc these days is so high.

If you have any questions about our yarns, or our pattern range available on Ravelry, please email me at and I’ll be happy to help.
