My First Sweater Class

Knitting a baby sweater is a great way to learn many of the techniques used to knit an adult sweater - but in considerably less time. This adorable unisex pattern is worked flat from the bottom up. It has raglan sleeves and can button down the front or the back with any number of buttons

In 3 sessions of 2-hour classes you will learn how to determine your gauge, read a schematic, follow a pattern, knit in the round (sleeves) using magic loop method, pick up stitches, seam with kitchener stitch, work short-row shaping, make button holes, weave in ends, bind off in pattern and block your finished sweater.
What to bring:

pattern - purchase Boardwalk by Tin Can Knits on line or at the shop. Have a look at the pattern to decide which size you want to make, but not larger than size 2-4yr. We want you to finish it by the end of week 6!

yarn - the pattern is knit with a DK-weight yarn which must be purchased through the shop where you will receive a 10% discount.

needles - 24" circulars in US 4 and US 6

notions - stitch markers, darning needle

swatch - Using a waste yarn on larger needles cast on 30 stitches and knit 4 inches in stockinette stitch. Do not cut your yarn so this can be your practice swatch.

All supplies can be purchased through Laughing Sheep Yarns prior to class.
