First Sweater Zoom Class
Saturday, January 21, 28, Feb 4, 11, 18, 25 & March 4 from 11:00am to 1:00pm.
Deadline to register is Thursday, January 19, 2023.
The First Sweater Class is designed to help beginning level knitters to knit their first sweater. The pattern is top down, and uses bulky yarns and larger needles so that it can be completed quickly. In addition, the pattern is perfect for first time sweater knitters, providing excellent explanations throughout the pattern.
Prerequisites : Knitters should know how to cast on, knit, and purl.
The First Sweater Class will be held over 7 weeks, and Cindy will teach how to read the pattern, joint and knit in the round, make lifted increases for the yoke, how to divide for sleeves and finish the body. Sleeves come last, and Cindy will teach how to do a stretchy bind off at the bottom of the sweater and sleeves.
ONCE REGISTERED, A DIGITAL DOWNLOAD WILL BE SENT TO YOU FOR THE CLASS SUPPLY LIST.
To be successful in the class knitters should know how to cast on, knit and purl. Cindy will teach the rest.
A note about class materials. We ask that students purchase their yarn for the class at Yarn Bar. There are 2 main reasons for this:
- We recommend yarn we know you will have success with. Learning a new skill is much more rewarding using the proper tools and materials. When students use materials other than what is suggested we can't assure your success with the class project.
- Frankly, we exist only with your support. We need our community to shop with us so we can be here for the long haul. We bring in additional inventory to support our classes, anticipating that students will purchase from us.
Yarn Recommended: Sample is in Juniper Yarn Beatrix.
Or any Bulky weight yarn purchased at Yarn Bar! ALL CLASS PARTICIPANTS WILL RECEIVE A 10% DISCOUNT ON PROJECT YARN.
