On the books for a while now, the long awaited SWEATER CLASS is coming to fruition.

WHO: This will be a class for people who’ve never knit a sweater or who are still a bit daunted by sweater projects. We will complete a sweater from start to finish together.

DATE & TIME: Sunday mornings from 10:30am to 12pm

PROJECT: we will all be working on a basic raglan sweater knit in the round. For ease & economy we’ll be special ordering “KidSilk Raglan” kits from Fleece Artist, so when you sign up for the class you will order yours in your preferred colourway. we’ll be working on the same pattern so everyone is on the same page but you can always emend the pattern to suit your style: make it a cardigan, change the neckline, change the hem or cuffs. The yarn is a really lovely & affordable hand dyed blend of kid mohair and silk – nice to wear and to knit with. It’s also not too thick or too thin.

COST: $10/hour for class time (approx 5 weeks, 1.5 hours per week = $75) plus $80 for the kit. Needles and notions are extra, plus applicable taxes.

PREREQUISITES: you must have basic knitting skills to attend this class. you should be able to cast on, knit, purl and cast off on your own and be able to consult a reference book. Knowledge of increasing and decreasing is useful but not necessary, as is reading patterns.

HOW: We already have 3 people committed so we should be able to start within a few weeks. Please e-mail us at knitomatic@gmail.com if you are interested in joining and please don’t forget to check the colour chart and choose the colourway for your kit.

To register and guarantee your place in the class you must pay the full cost for the class and the kit.
