Are you ready to take your knitting  to the next level? There is no better way to learn some new techniques and finishing tricks than on a cute (and manageably small) baby sweater. This sweater has many details that are adorable, if not totally necessary, like pockets, elbow patches, and a folded shawl collar. It is full of opportunities to learn new things in small doses, like a provisional cast-on, short row shaping, pockets, buttonholes, and applique. It all adds up to create a sophisticated cardigan that is perfect for the new baby with an old soul. Or if desired, you can make this sweater in child or adult sizes; it is equally cute for all ages! Many of our yarns would be perfect for this two-color garment, including SweetGeorgia Trinity Worsted (come see the sample!), Baah Sonoma, and Zara.


Advance preparation may be required depending on the class topic. Details will be provided one week in advance or upon sign-up. Each weekly class session includes two hours of hands-on instruction, and extra help outside of class if needed and our time allows (it almost always does!). Yarn for classes must come from Compatto Yarn Salon, and we are always happy to help you choose the best yarn for your class or project. If you have questions about this or any other class, please give us a call at 310-453-2130.
