Beginner Sweater Class - Wednesdays Oct 3, 17, & Nov 7 & 14 - 6-8pm
New to sweater knitting? Feeling a bit intimidated by sweaters? This class is for you! Join us as we walk you through the process from beginning to end.
In this class we will follow Joji Locatelli's top-down, seamless sweater pattern, The Easy One. We will focus on gauge swatching, sizing, knitting & purling, picking up stitches with optional exposed seams, and shaping with increases and decreases, all while creating a beautiful sweater!
If you are interested in "fading" your sweater we will also cover this in class.
