Techniques to Indulge In:Top down, seamless sweater construction, raglan shaping, reverse stockinette stitch, garter stitch, color fading, ribbing, working flat and in the round, short rows, picking up stitches and Jeny’s suprisingly stretchy bind off.

Another way to fade! This open cardigan is super cozy with its garter shawl collar! The Reverse Stockinette makes a stunning canvas to fade on for the most unique cardigan in your wardrobe!! This cardigan keeps me feeling cozy and stylish all in one!

KAL/CAL/WAL Policies:
Although we would love to see you at the group sessions, you can participate from anywhere! This KAL is free to participate in, but as with all classes, KALs/CALs/WALs, you must use yarns purchased from our store to join. Purchasing supplies and patterns supports designers and your LYS.

For those that need help:
There will be help available during KAL times. As always, we are happy to help with quick questions. This is not a structured class so if you are finding that you may need a little extra help and attention, let us know and we can schedule a quick private lesson with you!

Join anytime!
