Ready to move beyond the world of scarves to the world of sweaters? In this class you will make a basic worsted-weight cardigan. The main goal of this class is to teach you how to finish your sweater using vertical to vertical, horizontal to horizontal and vertical to horizontal seaming techniques. You will also learn how to attach a ribbed neckline, hem and button band and discuss many tips and tricks of sweater-making. This cardigan must be made for the person crocheting it. The majority of the crocheting will be done outside of class, so be prepared for homework in order to take advantage of in-class technique practice.
