NEW Top Down Sweater Class
Ready to knit your first beautiful sweater?
 
 
 
 
This sweater is great to throw over a t-shirt or tank top when there is a little chill in the air. It has a 3-4” ease and a figure flattering lace panel in the front and back. The stockinette side gives a visual slimming effect. It is worked from the top-down which means that the sweater can be tried on as it is being knitted to customize its fit, especially in length.  You also have the option to omit the lace - a great choice for beginners or those who want a more classic look.

Deco Fans Cowl Class
Date Change to 3/21

The class date for Deco Fans has been changed to Tuesday, 3/21 from 6 - 8 pm.

Deco Fans' is inspired by classic Art Deco wallpaper.  Although the stitch pattern looks complex, it features a combination of slipped stitches and cabling so colors are worked one at a time.  Worked in two colors of Mecha, the slipped stitches of this pattern provide a great opportunity to pair one semi-solid colorway with one of the highly variegated or watercolor colorways that for which Malabrigo is known.  Knit flat, the cowl has a button band to provide a variety of different ways for wearing.
In class, we will cover:
- chart reading
- slip stitches
- cables
- picking up stitches
- button holes
