This workshop will be our first in-store class in over a year!
A top-down sweater is the easiest sweater you can knit.
This 5-session KAL covers everything you need to know to confidently knit this sweater. This is a great first sweater project and a perfect class for people who would like to review their sweater skills with some expert help. Chiaki will provide very clear instructions during each KAL session. You will also have choices when it comes to the edging and neckline - rolled edge, 1 x 1 ribbing, crew neck, funnel neck, etc.
