Basic Pullover: Design and Knit Your First Sweater, Session 1

If you've never made a sweater before, or if you have but want to customize your own design, this class is for you! Using Jane Richmond's Ladies Classic Raglan Pullover pattern, we will design a sweater you love! We will take your measurements, pick the right size for you, go over where to add modifications for better fit, and add any design elements you might want, such as a cable detail, stripes, a different neckline, a cowl neck, you name it!

  • Class session 1, February 8th: Gauge and Fit: We will go over gauge swatches (very important!), take your measurements, and make modifications. We will also discuss raglan shaping and increasing.
  • Class session 2, Feb 15th: Separating for body and sleeves. You will knit your whole raglan between sessions 1 and 2, and we will separate your sleeves during this meeting.
  • Class session 3, Feb 22nd: Open session. We will go over any outstanding questions and work on our sweaters.
