My First Lace Sweater Zoom Class
May 13 and ending June 24 • 2-4pm
The First Lace Sweater Class is designed to help beginning level knitters to knit their first lace sweater. The pattern is top down, and uses either 2 fingering weight strands held together or sport weight yarn. Thesample uses a linen and a wool linen blend held together.
The First Lace Sweater Class will be held over 7 weeks over Zoom, and Cindy will teach how to read the pattern, join and knit in the round, how to do German Short Rows, make lifted increases for the yoke, show how to divide for sleeves and finish the body. Sleeves come last, and Cindy will teach how to do a stretchybind off at the bottom of the sweater and sleeves. We will be knitting the short sleeve version.
Class will run every Saturday for 7 weeks, starting May 13 and ending June 24. Time will be 2-4pm.
Cindy will use her own YouTube tutorial videos and the zoom sessions will be recorded. However, therecordings on Zoom will only be available for 1 week after the class session. Each session will be deleted after 7 days.
To be successful in the class knitters should know how to cast on, knit and purl. Cindy will teach the rest. Knitters should contact Cindy with preferred e-mail and text number. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Knitters should also become familiar with Zoom. Here are some tutorials for beginner zoomers: click here
Pattern: Yume by Isabell Kraemer
Yume is worked seamlessly from the top down. Short rows are worked followed by simple lace and increases to the sleeves. Body is then worked, and the sweater finishes with the sleeves. There are both short sleeve and long sleeve
instruction. The neckline is unfinished, but a ribbed neckline may be added at the end.
We will be knitting the short sleeve version
