Knitting A Novus Sweater with Laura Nelkin
In this class, Laura introduces students to the "Novus" construction, her seamless yet structured modern approach to the side-to-side sweater. She'll cover how the construction works, how to modify the construction to fit your body, any necessary skills needed for the construction (i.e. provisional cast-on, lifted increases, German short rows), and how to plug a stitch pattern or motif into the sweater. Students will discuss yarn choices, and cast on for a sleeve; by the end of class, they'll be ready to independently knit their sweater from the collection!
Prerequisite: Must have knit at least one sweater and are
comfortable reading a pattern.
