Regular price $45.00 Sale

Sundays, July 17 & 24, 4 to 6 p.m.

There are so many reasons to knit a top-down sweater: you can try it on as you go (yay!), there's usually much less purling (yay!), and there's no seaming to do at the end (double yay!).

A follow-up to our Knitting Garments That Fit class (a strongly recommended prerequisite), this intermediate-level workshop will teach you the techniques typically used in top-down sweater knitting, including the following:

  • short rows (two varieties and how to substitute one for the other) 
  • increases
  • backwards loop cast-on (and some little tricks for closing up underarm holes)
  • decreases

Participants should be comfortable knitting in the round.
