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 from the top down with raglan sleeves, a button band and no seams.

In 3 sessions of 2-hour classes you will learn how to determine your gauge, follow a pattern, knit in the round (sleeves), pick up stitches, make button holes, weave in ends, bind off in pattern and block your finished sweater.
Skill level:
This class is perfect for the advanced beginner who can cast on, knit and purl to a reasonably consistent gauge as well as for advanced knitters who have never knit a sweater.

What to bring:

Pattern - Little Coffee Bean by Elizabeth Smith Knits which is available as a free Ravelry download at .  Please review the pattern before you come to decide the size you will make.

Yarn - the pattern is knit with a worsted-weight yarn which must be purchased through the shop where you will receive a 10% discount.  See Pattern for yarn quantities.

Needles - 24" or 32” US 7 and  US 8 circular needles

Notions - stitch markers, tapestry needle, 5 - ¾” buttons (purchase after completion)

Knitted 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.
