Let's Knit a Sweater!!!!  $100 per student.
After many requests, a sweater class has just been added to the class list!
I'm really excited to teach you how to knit a sweater!
We will be knitting the Barn Sweater by Carrie Bostick Hoge
 You will be required to purchase the pattern on ravelry so the designer can receive the money for her design. Click here to visit Ravelry page for pattern. I will work with you through every step of the way. You will learn how to construct a sweater to fit your body. It is worked seamlessly from the top down. You will learn how to work a button band, button holes, seamless construction, built in pockets and finishing work.

Requirements for the class: Knowledge of how to knit, purl, increase and decrease.
Yarn, buttons and pattern. I recommend making a gauge swatch before you arrive at the first class. This is a tedious but very necessary step in knitting a garment. If you have never made a gauge swatch before let me know and I will talk you through the steps before you come to class.
Need help deciding on what yarn will be best? Contact me and I can make some recommendations.

Happy Knitting!

  1. hi Leanne, I will send you a check for the fingerless glove class. I would like to make the infinity scarf that you showed me, I don't know if you feel up to adding another class but I REALLY love that.
