Top-Down Sweater Construction Nov 6 6-8pm EST
A 2 hr class giving an overview of various sweater types using top-down construction (drop shoulder, set-in sleeve, circular yoke, saddle shoulder, raglan, and compound raglan). We will explore fit considerations for each sweater type as well as how to modify to suit to personal taste and preference. We'll do some knitting on a version of a set-in sleeve cap (this will require a bit of homework...just a small amount of knitting) as well as a mini-drop-sleeve sweater which will also give us some experience with short rows.
Fun With Miters Nov 7-11-1pm EST
Triangle garter shawls are fun and easy to knit, but there is so much more we can create with them! In this 3 hour class, we explore ways to use knit triangular and square shapes to create differently shaped shawls and even a circular, seamless cowl. We'll begin working a cowl from mitered triangles together and work a neat construction trick for joining it in the round while still working flat
