The Traveler Shell - Saturdays, Dec 9, 16, & 30 from 10:15a-12:15p
Have you seen Andrea Mowry's new pattern, The Traveler Shell? It is versatile, cozy, and adorable! Join us as we learn how to create this fabulous garment together!
This is a drop shoulder, open cardi with big pockets and is worked from the bottom up, seamlessly, except for the underarms. The shoulders are finished with an exposed seam using the 3 needle bind off. The collar & cuffs are picked up and knitted out from the body. The pockets are knit separately and sewn on once the cardigan is finished.
Cost: $75 for three 2-hour sessions. Pattern not included in purchase price.
Required Skills: Intermediate skill level required. In this class we will learn how to work a bottom up sweater with a tubular cast on, German short rows and tubular bind offs. This class is perfect for returning students and intermediate knitters who are looking to bump their sweater skills up a notch.
