Top down sweaters are increasingly popular. You can try the sweater on
as you knit it and this makes it easier to get a perfect fit.
In this class you will learn raglan sweater construction, how to work in the round, how to shape the yoke and neckline, how to divide for the sleeves and work the sleeves and lower body. You will also learn how to calculate your own numbers so you can knit a custom sweater.
All materials for practice will be supplied. If you'd like to work on specific numbers for your own sweater, please knit a swatch and block/press it before the class. The swatch should measure a minimum of 15x15cm and should be worked in stocking stitch, unless you wish to work your sweater in a different stitch pattern. Please bring some of the yarn and needles you'll be using for your sweater."
