Get Good Grades with Mer Stevens

Good Grades

Can you believe it’s almost officially Fall? The leaves are starting to change, and as the nights get cooler, our thought turn to sweaters. This is the perfect time to go back to school – sweater school!

Mer Stevens is teaching an in-depth class on her Good Grades cardigan, starting Saturday, September 26, from 2-4pm. Good Grades is a classic cabled cardigan, featuring set-in sleeves. It’s magic secret is the wide range of sizes and flattering shaping options. Mer believes in sweaters that beautifully fit all knitters, and Good Grades is designed with that philosophy in mind.


Mer is also giving her Fall Sweater Semester lecture series. These hour long talks cover the important factors in choosing yarn, patterns, and modifications. Armed with this knowledge, you’ll be a sweater valedictorian in no time!
