Join us as we work through Caitlin Hunter's fabulous Soldotna Crop sweater! She designed this pattern specifically for our shop during this year's Rose City Yarn Crawl and we couldn't be more excited to offer this class!
About the pattern:
The Soldotna Crop is a top-down circular yoke sweater that features stranded colorwork. Caitlin designed this sweater with Portland’s unpredictable spring weather in mind and the cropped length and sleeveless style make this a super quick and gratifying project. The design can easily be lengthened if crops aren’t your style, instructions are included in the pattern. Keep in mind that length changes will alter the yardage required.
Cost: $65 for three 2-hour sessions. Pattern not included in purchase price.
Required Skills: This design is simple enough for an adventurous beginner, yet still engaging for advanced knitters.
Yarn: DK weight yarn
