learn to knit your first sweater

Choose 1 of 4 Patterns


Have you been wanting to make a sweater but just don’t feel you were quite ready?  Trust me, YOU ARE!  In this class you can pick from four top down sweaters, each featuring different techniques.  Everyone will learn about fitting, gauge, ease, knitting in the round, simple increases, magic loop, finishing and blocking.  Depending on which pattern you choose, you will use increase methods to create a yoke sweater or a raglan sweater and some of you will learn short rows.  Check out the listed patterns and see which sweater is perfect for you.
