Knitting 200: Beginner Sweater


Five Thursdays, November 12th - December 17th, 3-5PM

This six week class if for knitters who have mastered casting on, binding off, knitting, purling and the basics of reading a pattern.

During this sweater making course, we will create a beautiful cozy beginner hooded cardigan, the Lucia Hoodie by Carrie Bostick Hoge.

As the weeks progress, we will delve deeper into necessities like purchasing a good yarn for your pattern in the correct quantity, "getting gauge", increases and decreases, pattern reading, fixing common mistakes, and finishing work.

Teaching will not be constant but will be comprehensive. You will have time to sit, knit, and enjoy the process with fellow classmates and your teacher. There will be lots of time for questions and answers.

The Lucia Hoodie Pattern 
1350-2270 yards worsted weight yarn
One 32" Circular US 7

This class will take place at Maker+Stitch and is limited to three participants. We will follow all Covid safety protocols. Masks are required.  We will not meet Thanksgiving Day.
