Take the Mystery Out of Knitting a Sweater
"I'm afraid to knit a sweater"- working in the WEBS retail store, I hear this all the time. Naturally, I always ask why. The most common answers are "it has to fit right," "reading patterns is hard-the directions are so complicated," and "you have to sew it together." This class will resolve all these concerns and have you well on your way to knitting the sweaters you've always wanted to make. Using a tried-and-true sweater pattern, we'll talk about all the basics of sweater knitting: gauge, reading a pattern (and what those mysterious abbreviations mean), and finally--seaming. When we're done, you'll have a beautiful basic sweater to wear proudly or give to a special someone. Students who want to take this class should know how to knit, purl, cast on, and bind off.
