Knit an All Season Sweater

This class is currently full. To be placed on the waiting list, please call Customer Service at 800-367-9327.

Sweaters aren't just for winter! The sweater you'll make in this class can be worn in almost any season--make it with short sleeves, 3/4 sleeves, cropped, or hip length, with lots of opportunities for customization. This adorable cardigan features lots of learning opportunities--charts, hemmed edges, neck and waist shaping, and beautiful lace panels. A unique top-down construction makes it interesting and fun to knit. Students taking this class should have some familiarity with charted knitting.
