02/23 • NO FRILLS SWEATER • Advanced Beginner Knitting, February 23, March 1 & 15 (11-1 pm) Sundays$90.00
Sometimes you just want a basic pullover. A pattern you can knit over and over. A sweater you can wear everyday. This is it! We love the No Frills pattern by Petite Knits. We've seen many versions of this sweater and they all look great! Knit it in a soft merino yarn that's solid (like Woolfolk Flette or Tynd) or hand-dyed (like Hedgehog Fibers Merino DK). Add in a little silk mohair to give it a sweet halo. Whatever you choose, we promise you'll love it! In this 3 part class, we'll guide you through all the tricky bits, like short rows, separating the sleeves from the body, and picking the sleeves back up. Most of the project is just simple, easy peasy stockinette knitting in the round. We do ask that you come to the first class with the yoke cast on and knit (1.5 inches of knit/purl ribbing). Come in if you need help with that part. This project is a breeze to knit! Aaaaah.
