Knit-A-Long: Sayer by Julie Hoover


Wednesdays in June from 1-3PM starting June 8th. As always, it is fine to start late. Knit-A-Longs are unfacilitated; we just have fun gathering, knitting, and chatting together.

We will knit Julie Hoover's Sayer top together! This is a fun summer project and adorable top that can be worn with the V in front or back. It is knit in pieces from the bottom up. Kimberly has knit this one before and will knit another with us! It is possible to knit this in the round until the arm hole division.
