Are you making a cardigan?
Thanks, dude :) Yup, I'm going to steek the front and put in a zipper.
Nice!! I have never made a sweater from top to bottom. What kind of increases you used?
I'm curious about this strategy, too. I think it's more efficient and will probably result in better fitter sweaters.
For the increases, what I did was to cast on one stitch in the appropriate color (using the backward loop method) every time the chart for working bottom-up said to decrease one stitch. And I like to knit into the back of the new stitch when I encounter it on the rollowing round - it tightens it up just a bit and it blends perfectly into the fabric.
I have to say, after doing it this way, I think I'll stick to it. I worked a non-lopapeysa bottom-up, and I find this more to my taste. Plus I've been able to try it on and adjust the fit as I go along.
