Top-Down Raglan Sweater From Measurements*
This class is currently full. Please call Customer Service at 1-800-367-9327 to be put on the wait list.
*This class fulfills the Top-Down Raglan Sweater from Measurements Requirement for WEKP.
Imagine: no more dependence on patterns, no more endless purling, no more poor fit, and no more sewing seams! The top-down raglan pullover you knit will be your own design and made to your measurements. There is no pattern, only a formula into which you'll plug your numbers. This style of sweater is not only fun to make, and very comfortable, but it will also reflect your unique style. This sweater must be made for the person knitting it, and the knitter must have a real sense of adventure. *Required Text: Knitting from The Top by Barbara Walker (15% discount).
