Are you a serial scarf-knitter? Interested in tackling a bigger project with some shaping? Try a sweater!
We will be learning to make a top-down seamless sweater (no sewing it all together at the end!). You'll have two weeks between classes to finish your yoke, the second class will get you knitting the body, and lesson three is for sleeves. The first class is two hours to get everyone started, and the second and third classes are 90mins.
We'll be using one of Diane Soucy's popular top-down patterns, everyone's favorite first sweater. The pattern is $7.00 and can be purchased on Ravelry or in the shop when you purchase your yarn. The sweater has a roll neck and cuffs, but you will have to option to do ribbing instead, to be discussed in the first class.
The pattern, Yarn & Tools:
#9724 Top Down Pullover for Women
- Aran, 16 sts = 4" Yarns suggestions: Lucky Tweed
, Kraemer Perfection Chunky
, Malabrigo Mecha
US 6 circular needles, 16" & 32"
US 9 circular needles, 32"
US 6 & 9 DPN's, optional, to be discussed in first class.
Note, if you use interchangeable needles, you need only 6's, 9's, and 16" and 32" cords. You may want some spare cords for holding stitches.
Another note: to get the most out of the class, please complete your stockinette gauge swatch on the US 9 needles beforehand and come in to the shop to have Lisa, Reena or Danielle check it for you. If you come on a Monday, Wednesday or Saturday you'll for sure find one of them here.
For help with any of this, stop by the shop or attend one of our clinics before the class.
