If you’ve been wanting to give your first garment a go, this is an excellent class to start you off! We will go over the three main types of sweater construction: raglan, pieced, and bottom up, all while knitting adorable tiny sweaters! We will provide you with three different patterns, and you can choose to knit one, two, or all three. You’ll learn how to seam knitwear, pick up stitches, and Kitchener live stitches together!
This class is designed for advanced beginners and above. You will need to know how to cast on, knit, purl, bind off, read a basic pattern, as well as how to do basic increases and decreases. Pattern details will be sent out three days prior to class so you can choose whether to use stash yarn or purchase yarn at a 10% class material discount from us.
