New Directions in Sweater Knitting

It’s not too late! We still have space in two exciting Spring sweater classes. Don’t miss a chance to discover your new favorite way to knit sweaters, meet more knitters, and have a blast!

Top Down Sweater with Set In Sleeves – Clarendon Pullover: Saturday, March 19, 26 & April 2, 9, & 16; from 10:30am-12:30pm. In her stunning book, Top Down: Reimagining Set In Sleeve Design, Elizabeth Doherty introduces a revolutionary method focused on achieving beautifully tailored sleeve and shoulder construction. The perfect introduction is the cozy, classic, Clarendon pullover. Students will learn the essentials of the method, and more about what makes for a great fitting sweater. You’ll leave ready to cast on your next pattern from the book – maybe even to design your own!

 

 Sideways Sweater Construction – Francis Top: Francis.2:16Tuesday, March 22 & 29, April 5, 12, & 19, from 6:00-8:00pm. (Please note: classes on March 22 & April 12 are from 6:00-7:00pm.) Sideways construction offers a completely different take on sweater geometry, and a chance to use special tricks. Students will learn a clever provisional cast-on technique, conquer short row shaping, and finish with a kitchener stitch for a nearly seamless top. Olga Buraya-Kefelian’s Francis is a flattering, versatile top to wear as seasons change. Discover why this is one of my most loved directions for sweater design!
