This series is tailored for you! After you choose your favorite sweater pattern this class will guide you through all the steps necessary for knitting a sweater that fits. We will start by considering yarn fibers and weights, move to size and fit, learn the importance of gauge and swatching, cover techniques, and finally we will focus on finishing and care of garment. The class will concentrate on sweater basics as well as provide individual instruction.
